Before we knew it, Spring turned into Summer, and now Autumn is unfolding. Time is flying by, and the team behind NeverLazy has never been busier. Pace is also picking up where inspiration is concerned, as more and more fantastic artists, designers and photographers are generating amazing work ever so quickly. Even though everything is speeding up and we are rushing through lists of things to do, the creativity of our contributors is motivating us to slow down and take a moment to appreciate the work we are featuring. In this Autumn 2014 issue, covered by young fashion designer Emma Bradstreet, we are glad to present exclusive stories by photographers David Garcia, Ed Maximus, Eric Chu, Ewa Kępys, Krzysztof Frankiewicz, Malgorzata Juchnik, Martijn Mendel, Sylwia Grzegórzko, Tomokazu Hamada and their talented teams. This issue has an abundance of photography, as well as a few gems and pearls in illustration, graphic design and mixed media. We have been particularly proud to see that a few of our previous contributors are continuous to work with us, and hope you, dear reader, will carry on enjoying each issue to come. ∞ JC

As much as it expresses silence and beauty, there is also an honest sadness and tragedy to ‘My Boys, Downtown’, a new editorial story by rising Dutch photographer Martijn Mendel. With his use of rich colour and texture, Martijn has created a narrative which oozes with depth and produces an absolutely timeless cinematic effect. In an exclusive interview with NeverLazy Magazine, the photographer speaks of his visual aesthetic and admiration for the likes of Lana Del Rey, and explains what this incredible story says about himself. >

Who is Martijn Mendel? I am a young photographer from Holland with a strange fascination for everything that is dramatic. I find beauty within the American cinematic language. I could say that the world is a fucked up place, yet it is also amazingly beautiful, and I strive to display these two elements in my work.

Describe your aesthetic to us, and what you try to achieve through your work... In my work I constantly try to show my vision of the world and how it is portrayed in its finest state. I truly believe that we can only experience true happiness if we’re open to all that there is to feel. This series mainly experiments with portraying the beauty in tragedy. >

Tell us a bit about this editorial story, ‘My Boys, Downtown’, and what you want to convey through its cinematic atmosphere... The third photo (the one between the shelves) is probably the most honest picture I’ve ever taken. It’s very voyeuristic. It shows how I look at people and certain situations, or how I imagine them to be. You’re secretly looking at this set with a couple of people. You are aware something’s going on, and you want to know what it is. It’s like a forbidden fruit: it only tastes better once you’ve acquired it, and you only want more of it.

What does this story say about yourself and your creative identity? For years, I’ve wanted to make a short movie about a guy sitting in a train, chewing bubblegum, his cheeks going up and down and his lips wet. Every detail in itself can be so precious and beautiful, erotic in a way. I wanted to share this – the small moments that make the scene something so tender and adored. As I said before, this series is also very dramatic and cinematic. For me, it’s a ‘celebration’ of feeling. In my country everybody is very mellow and down-to-earth, and although I can understand why people >

Autumn 2014 / 15


like being that way, it also bothers me a lot. I want to shake those people and make them feel. I want to make them realize that they can make their lives as alluring as a piece of art – or a movie, in this case.

In what ways would you say you have grown as a photographer, up until now? What paths do you see yourself exploring down the line? I’m still figuring out who I am, exactly. Actually, photography is a medium that really helps me find answers. I see fascinations and subjects coming back in my work. That’s how I am figuring out who I am, what I love and most importantly, what I want to share.

What themes or concepts are you eager to explore within your work? People say: “that’s so not done!” and it can be really easy to agree with that, but I’m always interested in asking: “why is it so not done?” Is that solely the case because society says so? I think that in the near future you will see a lot of work from me that will deal with these issues. Additionally, I want to explore more stories that deal with human relationships (such as threeways, like this story ‘My Boys, Downtown’) but also with little details (such as white socks and sport shoes, which I love!) >

Who would you most like to collaborate with? The answer to this question constantly changes. It really depends on who I relate to during a certain phase. One of my goals is to work with musicians. Right now I really love what Lana Del Rey is producing and would love to make a video for her. She sells this ‘lifestyle’ and it just works. I can relate to it as well. Within photography, I would love to work with a more accomplished photographer like Steven Klein, whom I really admire. He has this perfect balance: he makes commercial work that still clearly contains his ‘own’ footprint.

------Jesús Sotés

Pamplona-based artist Jesús Sotés Vicente, who goes by the pseudonym Dr. Invention, is an illustrator and graphic designer who pays homage to his childhood love of comic books. The 40-year-old creates vivid, surrealist graphics full of depth and with an aesthetic stance that is almost reminiscent of the works of Picasso. He talks to NeverLazy Magazine about how he perceives his own work and creates such imaginative illustrated worlds.

DR. INVENTION Tell us a bit about yourself and your creative world under the pseudonym ‘Dr. Invention’... When I was a child I remember spending hour upon hour reading Sci-Fi and horror comics, alone, in my room. Since then, I have never stopped drawing. My interest in graphic design came some years later. I am a self-taught illustrator and graphic designer, and have been for 10 years. I have been both of these within different studios and advertising agencies since 2003, until around 2010. Since 2010, I have worked under the pseudonym Dr. Invention, as a freelancer.

This pseudonym came to me, like many things in life, by chance. One day I opened a book to a random page and there they were, two words, >

The collection combines high fashion and innovation with its interactive fashion film Humans Are Vectors, directed by Ced Pakusevskij: by inviting users to re-order the sequence of film shots to their liking, the video places an emphasis on the smallest movements of both the designs and the human figure, and is an intriguing display of modernity and beauty. ∞ AC

By relying on the elegance of a subdued colour palette, edgy dark contrasts and a natural backdrop, Ewa Kępys stuns yet again with one of her latest, signature editorial stories: Getaway, a beautiful ode to nature as well as a cool, calming farewell to the summer season. With its fairytale feel and its use of graceful, detailed outfits, this story conveys a dreamy setting that appears to have emerged straight out of the young photographer’s wild imagination. Getaway tells a rich, atmospheric and moody tale, as it inspires viewers to escape from the every day. ∞ AC

I tried to captivate their story in nine pieces, each telling a part of their long (and tragically, still unfulfilled) quest to equal rights and social recognition. The pieces chosen for this editorial are from the part of the collection which tells a darker story of repression and exclusion, through contrasting fabrics and textures and unconventional silhouettes.

M: For me it was important to give the textures and shapes of Leroy’s beautiful pieces as much attention as possible, without the editorial being too much about the clothes. I tried to compliment the collection through the model’s poses and post-processing.

What does this story mean to both of you, on a more personal level? M: I really enjoyed working with Leroy and for me, it was a confirmation that working with designers can be enjoyable instead of being too much of a struggle. We had a lot of fun that day. >

------Marek Wójciak

For visual artist Marek Wojciak, narratives appear to take precedence over the technicalities of photography as he immerses viewers into worlds of emotion and extreme beauty. As he tells compelling stories through stunningly powerful photographic series, Marek’s work encompasses the softness of the female figure and human kind’s fragile nature with incredible ease and grace. As he plays quite often on the values of sadness and loneliness, Marek forms a certain nostalgia within his photographic portraits that viewers are not soon to forget. ∞ AC

------Simone Truong

172 / NeverLazy Magazine


English visual artist Simone Truong explores the transitory states that occur in natural phenomena, creating a permanence that we otherwise rarely see within flora and fauna. Imbricating the past, present and future, the 26-year-old’s work gives a fresh outlook to temporality in art – one that in fact parallels her own artistic growth. She shares this with NeverLazy Magazine, as well as her inspirations and hopes for the years to come.

“ I L I K E B E I N G S P O N TA N E O U S I N M Y W O R K ” Tell us about yourself and your creative background? Art has always been my passion from since I was young, so I have always been focused on becoming an artist from an early age. I left school to study for a Diploma in Fine Art, which led me onto a degree. Here I am now, continuing to do something I love.

Who and what are your biggest inspirations? Anybody who has a real passion for what they do is inspirational. Artistically, I am really inspired by works from the 17th and 18th centuries, especially the Rococo movement. >

Autumn 2014 / 173


174 / NeverLazy Magazine


Autumn 2014 / 175


Tell us about your style and the process behind it... I’d like to think my style is contemporary, with a mixture of influences that range across many great talents of the past. My original pieces have a slightly more timeworn feel, but my prints tend to have a clean feel to them, combined with a messy touch that is synonymous of my style.

I like being spontaneous in my work, not knowing exactly what the finished piece would look like, so I usually put my ideas down as rough drawings. I often form my ideas using Adobe Photoshop as a first step, and then add traditional methods such as painting later on in the process, but it depends on the piece. Sometimes I can start off painting and have a completely reversed method.

What do you try to convey through your use of flora and fauna in your work? We often only get to view fleeting moments when it comes to flora and fauna, so my aim is to create permanence with my work. By fusing the past, present, and even the future of these together, I want to highlight the beauty but also the mundanity that occurs throughout their natural life circle. >

What has your creative practice taught you about yourself? It has taught me that I have a lot more patience than I thought.

How do you see your art evolving over the coming years? What mediums have you experimented with and which would you be curious to explore? At the moment my works are on a small scale, so I plan on creating larger pieces. This is something I have been working on recently. I tend to work with acrylic a lot, which I really like, but would love to work with resin in the future.

To you, what is the most rewarding aspect about being an artist? Having the freedom to run wild with your ideas and create whatever you want, when you want. That, and hearing how others have enjoyed your work. That is very rewarding.

A word of wisdom to share with us? Always be yourself, in everything you do. ∞ GC

I’ve worked with publishers, magazines, advertising agencies, small businesses and others, and I’m usually interested in almost every project if it is challenging and gives me an opportunity to develop great work. Working with a brief is, for me, the best way to start a project with a well defined objective. It helps and challenges me at the same time, so it is great!

What have been your favourite projects to date and why? If I have to choose, I would say the New York City Map & Guide that I designed for The Citizen of the World, a small business based in the United States and owned by Lizbeth Davila. It was a great challenge to design an illustrated map of this great city and it gave me a chance to explore how my personal style adapts to this kind of project. I look forward to designing new maps with them. Haha!
