SALYSÉ Magazine is a photography magazine, featuring beauty, fashion, and conceptual art editorials. We do not seek to define beauty with one narrow idea, but with myriad viewpoints Vintage is right next to emerging designers, who are right next to established designers. We are looking for creatives who push the envelope, take chances, and disregard the status quo. SALYSÉ Magazine is about sophistication, authenticity, with a touch of eccentricity. ---------FOLLOW https://instagram.com/salysemagazine/ LIKE https://www.facebook.com/salysemagazine SUBSCRIBE http://issuu.com/salysemagazine PURCHASE http://www.magcloud.com ---------Not just a magazine— a movement!

Letter from the Editor Dear Salysians, Red. February 14th. Valentine’s Day. The day of love. But wouldn’t it be such a better world if we expressed that love on the other 364 days of the year? I am finding it incredibly difficult to write about “LOVE”, when I am greatly troubled by the hate I see emanating from the highest office in the United States. So, in these tough times, I hope SALYSÉ can bring a little love, a little sunshine, and a little joy into your world. As always, I hope you enjoy your escape. Hugs and Love, Sonya Alyse Lawyer SALYSÉ, Founder and Editor in Chief

--------A few quotes that have been on my mind since January 20th: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Martin Luther King, Jr. In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King, Jr. Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. -Martin Luther King, Jr. The moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice. -Martin Luther King, Jr. Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. -Martin Luther King, Jr. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality. -Martin Luther King, Jr. ----------

Meet Photographer Kirill Buryak How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. I first learned to appreciate film photography as a kid, in my family’s darkroom in Ukraine, while developing B&W photographs with my dad. I have been doing photography ever since, trying my hand in various genres. I was tapped to do an installation of celebrity chef’s “hall of fame” that have spoken at the Google campus - that was the genesis of my interest in portraiture photography. In the last few years I’m focusing on portrait, editorial fashion & beauty photography. Three adjectives to describe yourself. Obsessive. Innovative. Meticulous What do you enjoy the most about photography? That moment right before the click, with your finger on the shutter, when you want to stop time completely, because every frame, every millisecond of it is absolutely beautiful.

Meet Model Eva Villalobos How did you get started modeling? Tell us about yourself. I loved fashion and supermodels as a teenager, but as I got older I didn’t feel it was healthy to be held to supermodel standards of weight, plus I’m a few inches too short. I didn’t know about other genres of modeling until a coworker at Starbucks showed me some of her art modeling work. It was really cool how she was transformed into something completely different from who I knew her to be. I made an account on Model Mayhem and went from there. At the same time, I moved to Hawaii to volunteer on organic farms - which is a passion of mine. So, every so often, I’d have the opportunity to collaborate with artists and photographers, and I built my portfolio. I enjoyed being creative with my body. I saw that other freelance models were using their work to travel and go on “tours”, so to speak, and I decided to do that as well. I try to balance my work life with time spent in nature as well as museums to “refill the cup” of my inspiration.
Your zodiac sign? Pisces
Three adjectives to describe yourself. Contemplative, earthy, dancer.
What do you do when you are not modeling? I love to garden, dance, hike, camp, explore cities with unique architecture, go to museums, ride bikes. Exploring in general. Oh and yoga, I love love love yoga and studying various wisdom traditions. Comparative mythology is my jam.
What do you enjoy the most about modeling? I love traveling and collaborating with talented creatives. What do you not enjoy about modeling? As with any job, not everyone is easy to work with. I dislike when when people are flakey or act unprofessionally. Favorite color? Purple Favorite food? Brussels sprouts What designer would you love to model/walk for?Why? I could have answered this question much more easily ten years ago, but I haven’t kept up with that kind of stuff lately. Speak it into existence, where do you see yourself in 5 years? Healthily balanced between world travel/philanthropy and gardening at home/building local sustainable community. Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? I would love to return to Bali, ride bicycles through the rice paddies, bask in the glory of all those temples, and eat a lot of great food.
Favorite superhero? Why? I’m not big into superheroes, but if I had a super power it’d be flight. What person, living or dead, do you admire the most? Why? My teacher, Gurmukh. She is the embodiment of radiance and inspires me to serve others. What’s your theme song? This is incredibly hard to answer because I listen to so many genres of music, but, at the moment it’s Rogue Bagel by Ott. What is your favorite body part? Legs
Favorite movie? Amelie? Moulin Rouge? Samsara? Hard to say. Favorite actor/actress? Currently, Meryl Streep Your idea of “happiness” and/or your idea of “misery”? Dancing regularly, yoga highs, delicious healthy food with good people, a good balance of nature and city life. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Tango dancing Guilty Pleasure?

Meet Hair & Make Up Artist Dunia Ghabour How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself I grew up in South America Brazil and moved to New York in 1999. I was constantly exposed to beauty living in Brazil. In our culture, women want to be beautiful but look natural. This attracted me to learn about the beauty industry.

I really admire his ability to reinvent hairstyles and periods with a fresher eye.
