editor’s letter

Hi Friends, In pulling together this issue I realized that I know the rules of society but most of the time I break them for the sake of my own personal code. All it takes is a look, a look at the expression on someone’s face, a look at something miraculous, something destructive, sad, or breathtakingly beautiful. It doesn’t take much to make me forfeit any benefit of following the rules that have set society norms because I’m not sure they have much value. So in this issue only our rules apply. We follow the path of defiance with integrity to reveal what is there. Voices are used, paths are abandoned and liberation allows for the explosion of new art with no signs of destruction in the aftermath. The talent in this issue has leaped over potential obstruction and taken a picture from the top. So enjoy what you see and feel what you feel. I look forward to your reactions!

After shooting for clients like Nike, State Farm Insurance, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and Lamborghini, Nick is quickly spreading his philosophy of photography. A big believer in living in the moment, his photos follow suit. With a designer’s eye, he’s constantly searching for that perfect moment to tell the whole story. And the pursuit of these moments has taken him around the world. His love of travel has recently collided with his career and he’s published his first book, Photo Trekking. It’s also moved him from Los Angeles to New York City this year, abandoning the beautiful weather and tropical views in favor of subway lunatics and urban skylarking. The latter of which obviously lead to more interesting moments. You’ll never catch a palm tree doing back flips on a crowded train.

Having grown up with a darkroom in his basement and a Pentax 67 on his arm, Canadian-born fashion and portrait photographer Gary Fitzpatrick began learning the art and science of picture taking at a young age. Today, having worked everywhere from Milan to Mauritania, he feels most at home wherever a shoot takes him; his style embodying a rebellious yet sophisticated spirit. On top of his fashion and portrait work, he is currently working on two photo art projects, a suite of prints based on historical bank robberies, and a series of nudes. His second book will be published in the fall. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and dog, Fender.

Ise’s fashion career began when she started designing sets and costumes for performance art projects. She started her own costume company after graduating with a BFA in painting and art history. She exhibited at major museums and galleries before moving to New York to get a masters in figurative painting and drawing. After moving to New York, Ise fell into styling through  friends in the fashion industry and soon thereafter was featured in major magazines like L’Officiel, Vogue España, and L’Uomo Vogue. Retail Ad & Design featured Ise as an “upcoming talent to watch for.” Before long, she was styling major ad campaigns for Olympus, Fashion Week, Pantene, Coors Light, Coca Cola, and others. Ise spent her childhood living a nomadic lifestyle traveling throughout Europe and Asia, which influences her eclectic tastes. She continues to travel frequently for styling, and draws inspiration from her  environments, music, diverse cultures, and art. 

Anthony Elgort A world traveller and visionary creator of images, Anthony Elgort has been a resident of Los angeles for only a year, but he has already made his mark. Elgort’s ground breaking work ranges from travel to the snowy mountains of Bulgaria in the cold winter, to finding a sculptural nude beneath the waters of Cape Cod. In his dynamic portraits, he connects with and brings out the personality beneath, seeking the miraculous, the strong, and the visually arresting. In his remarkable fashion pictures he strips back the layers to find something elusive and sophisticated, sexy in the truest sense-- soulful, alive, edgy and beautiful.

Producing prodigy [and/or musical maestro] Mathias Modica

DJ MUNK

A

As the progenitor of German record

label Gomma and the man behind

the alias of DJ Munk, Modica is no stranger to standing out from the crowd. Indeed, the very genesis of Gomma producing partner Jonas Imbery were met by roadblock after roadblock in their attempts to share their music with the masses. “We started to make music but nobody wanted to release it, so we were forced to do it ourselves,” Modica laughs. “We want to do stuff unlike what anyone else does; we try to keep changing, even

if it’s a risk.” The Italio-German producer wears many hats – in addition to DJing, he tours with his four man band, also known as Munk. “I’m interested in connecting music in different forms, from classical to acoustic rock to electronic,” he explains. “Pure DJing is too limiting – I need to play with a band and create energy with an audience too.”

DJ MUNK

Along with Imbery, Modica has inadvertently found himself serving as de facto leader for an eclectic band of musicians, artists and fashion designers, all lovingly gathered under their Gomma label. This commune of creativity travels across the world, from London to Tokyo to Sydney, performing at fashion shows, creating art exhibits (dubbed MondoGomma Picture Shows) and producing t-shirt designs, all in an attempt to showcase the unique way they view the world. “I’ll tell you this, most music people are boring,” the DJ admits without a hint of hesitance, “Especially in the electronic or club music scene. I get bored easily, I need people who do different stuff and give me a different input, people who see things from another point of view. On my label, I’m connected to all these interesting people; there’s a lot of flow and inspiration around me.” That inspiration is apparently contagious, since art collectors and fashionistas across the globe seem eager to latch on to Gomma’s unique who feature Modica’s tracks in their shows and promotional videos, to Parisian retail store Colette, which painted its walls with artwork from one of Munk’s albums. In Berlin and Barcelona, fans snap up copies of Amore, the poster magazine that Gomma publishes, filled with the work of graphic designers and illustrators that the musical iconoclast counts among his friends.

F

or a guy who walked off the set of his debut feature as a writer-director, there’s a surprising lack of irony in Eric

Amadio’s observations about himself. “This has been kind of a recurring theme throughout my career, but I’ve always been doing things original to a fault, probably.” Amadio, whose first film After Sex was recut by its distributor and released in theaters without his approval, is the resilient, unwavering type, a muss of brown hair

and boyish charm that disguises one of the most fiercely independent - and still strangely responsible - rebels Hollywood has these days. In his words, the discovery of his artistic ambitions came at an early age. “I grew up in Downey, California,” he explains on a recent, overcast Los Angeles afternoon. “I was an only child, and that kind of naturally led to me becoming a writer.” For Amadio, it wasn’t merely the self-expression that appealed to him, but the eventual connection his work would make with an audience. “I was writing my whole childhood, and I got published when I was ten. It sounds way more impressive than it is, but from there I got some poetry published, like small things that the teacher would submit you for, and that was the first time I got a taste of reactions (my work could have).” © Collective Magazine 2010

post-coital

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” - Albert Einstein

This month I want you to be socially defiant and pursue a goal. Stop returning texts and calls from people who drain your energy and waste your time, complete the assignment or project at work as you see fit against the suggestion of your boss, stand facing the wrong way in an elevator, or try that something you’ve been dying to do but it always gets put off because none of your friends will do it with you. Just make sure what you do is the product of your own thoughts and conclusions. Individuals are the ones who change history. Yes there are culture forces, but it’s the action of individuals (just like you) that have defined history and changed the world. There have been great men and women in who have changed the world for the better and their actions often clashed with social norms of the times. Need further encouragement to be socially defiant? Google the names of Rosa Parks, Thomas Edison, Martin Luther King Jr., Isaac Newton, Mohammed, or Vincent Van Gogh who only sold one painting while he was alive and read their stories of what a poor litmus test society is for right and wrong. Society today convinces us to work jobs we don’t like, to buy thinks we don’t need, to impress people we don’t even like. Sounds a little ridiculous, doesn’t it? Here’s what I want you to do. If you’re reading this I want you, yes you, to set one wild audacious goal to be completed in the next 30 days. Get a pen out and write it down. It can be anything. The only requirement is, it’s got to make you feel a little nervous and

final word

uncomfortable and I want you to carry it around in your wallet for the next 30 days. Maybe it was a childhood dream you’ve put on the shelf because you’re afraid of what people will think and say if you go for it, especially at your age. Perhaps it’s a social norm you don’t agree with. Whatever it is – write it down and go for it! Do not be afraid to polarize people or society along the way – change and greatness always does. Read your written goal every morning and put on the blinders and vow to ignore the tabloids, groupthink, and whispers from the critics, friends, and naysayers, who it may seem at times, like their only purpose is to dissuade you from reaching your goal over the next 30 days. And as a reader of The Collective, you are an innovator of thought, and a catalyst for change. Your creative force is what shapes the world we live in so let your inner child out this month with no regrets. Remember, they’ve never erected a statue for the critic, but a great number of statues have gone up to honor those individuals and visionaries who see things society does not – so for the next 30 days – defy society and those around you to achieve your goal and be that change!!

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Winston Churchill
