EDITORIAL

Dear Superior Magazine readers, It’s our last Superior Magazine issue this year and we really like to say THANK YOU to everybody who made 2016 a very successful year for us – our team, our contributors, our partners and of course you! Generally, we present in December all the covers we had in the respective year and you can vote for your favourite cover. But this year we celebrated our 5th anniversary and already showed all covers we ever had on our September cover. Nevertheless, you can win something – more about that at the end. The December cover comes from Malte Grüner. His fashion editorial “Dépayser” is based on a “Plan B” because the venue for the original shooting wasn’t as expected. The whole idea of the editorial had to be built up and improvised right before the shooting. Nonetheless the result is an editorial showing strength and attitude with the usage of extreme light but also reserved setups. Other exciting fashion editorials come from Adam Trzaska, Felix Bernason, Lorenzo Novelli and Michael St-Yves. With these photographers we published nearly w100 fashion editorials this year. Many thanks to all great photographers, stylists, hair & make-up artists, models, designers and everybody else who made this happen. We hope we will see again a lot of great contributions in 2017.

For our Superior Magazine App we are busy working on the next issue. The focus theme for that issue will be “Hope”. We like to present people and projects that give some hope to the world. Some of them are big things, but we also like to present small initiatives that show with how much enthusiasm many of us try to make our world a little bit better. Even the process, meeting these people and talking to them is exciting for us. Last but not least don’t miss the chance to win the wonderful headphones we got from Sennheiser. Have a look into this issue or our Superior Magazine App and write us an email. We wish you good luck! Now, enjoy our final 2016 Superior Magazine issue and have wonderful and peaceful holidays…

CONTRIBUTORS

© Felix Bernason

FELIX BERNASON ORIGIN Germany, based in Hamburg PHOTOGRAPHIC APPROACH It’s clean, classy and sometimes edgy. SOURCE OF INSPIRATION Felix is mostly influenced by the old and classic timeless fashion style of the fashion cities Milan, Paris and London, fashion blogs and colours of the nature. But also by his love of nature and its powerful colours. ABOUT HIS FASHION EDITORIAL OUT & ABOUT FOR SUPERIOR MAGAZINE The idea behind “Out & About” is to show the beauty of the nature which seems to be so far away from the cities. The autumnal nature has the most beautiful colours, which inspired me to shoot “Out & About”. The photos try to combine these colours with the handsomeness of the models while shooting in this magically silent dunes that amaze with perfection.

LORENZO NOVELLI ORIGIN Italy PHOTOGRAPHIC APPROACH I think it fresh, interesting and part of the new fashion scene. SOURCE OF INSPIRATION Inspiration can be found in everything for Lorenzo. In music, magazines, exhibitions and also around the city. ABOUT HIS FASHION EDITORIAL IN OTHER SHOES FOR SUPERIOR MAGAZINE With his photography he tries to photocopy his own point of view on things. With In other shoes he tries to capture the model in scenes of the daily life without specific posing, only created spontaneously. Special thanks go out to the team for this fun shoot and Lorenzo hopes you will enjoy this editorial he is really happy with.

MALTE GRÜNER ORIGIN PHOTOGRAPHIC APPROACH

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

ABOUT HIS FASHION EDITORIAL DÉPAYSER FOR SUPERIOR MAGAZINE

DECEMBER 2016

Germany, based in Bensheim Malte himself would describe it as a dynamic approach to fashion & portrait photography focussing on light and shadow solely using available light or light sources that can be found on location. It might seem simple, but following his favourite photographers on social media is the starting point – furthermore he looks through (online-) magazines. But inspiration does not only come from online, but the everyday life, whether it’s while travelling or in conversations with other creatives is inspiring as well. The editorial is based on a “Plan B” because the venue wasn’t as expected. The whole idea of the editorial had to be built up and improvised right before the shooting. Nonetheless the result is an editorial showing strength and attitude with the usage of extreme light but also reserved setups.

MICHAEL ST-YVES ORIGIN PHOTOGRAPHIC APPROACH

ABOUT HIS FASHION EDITORIAL LES DÉSERTEURS FOR SUPERIOR MAGAZINE

19

France, based in Israel His favourite style of photography is an homage to reportage photography whose arresting images take us through layers of reality. But still they can be seen as fashion stories, capturing people and clothes and body language and a whole Zeitgeist that so-called “fashion” stylists and photographers often reference and try to emulate later on. For today’s photography a central role of professionals has become to capture what’s beyond the visible: character, emotions, relationships, unspoken codes, inner worlds. In fashion photography it is the spark of life that fashion, in a way, only adorns and celebrates (like Mario Testino) as well as those who probe inner worlds and emotions (like Helmut Newton). A few decades of peace in Western Europe made us believe that wars were over, but the world doesn’t rest. And the search for a moment of peace, hidden away from the world and time, can be seen as an act of rebellion against the violent march of history. This story follows a couple of such “deserters” who steal a night away from their bases and the world to rediscover the timeless story of love, hoping they can forget that, with daylight, the dream will end and they will have to rush back to their positions.
