PUBLISHER'S CORNER ENJOY THE PHOTOS!

The 26th edition Winter Party Festival, themed "With Open Arms," was a lot of fun. Thousands of sexy men hit the dance floors on the sands of Miami Beach, at Nikki Beach, Club Space, the James L. Knight Center and other venues, and had a wonderful time. The weather was also as beautiful as the men – as it's often the case this time of the year in Miami and Miami Beach. This week, we bring you our Winter Party Festival print photo albums from The Beach Party, Under One Sun Evolution, and Masterbeat Odyssey. I invite you to enjoy hundreds of additional photos of the Winter Party Festival online by visiting our website, wiremag.com; where you can also sign up to get your FREE subscription to Wire Magazine and continue receiving our magazine issues throughout the year. For this week's cover story, we sat down with famed photographer David Vance to discuss how he is using a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finance the publication of his new large scale photo book of gorgeous guys entitled Men and Water. According to David, "Men and Water will include images that involve water, on and around beautiful men in various stages of undress, from fully clothed to totally nude." The book will be 13.5x10.4 inches in size and 128 pages long. It will be printed in Italy. The business of book publishing has changed a lot in the era of the Internet and print to order. Those changes include new ways for authors and photographers to finance the cost of getting their work published; something David chose to do for his new compilation of male models. In Arts Newsie, we preview the 12th annual Flamenco Festival Miami taking place at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Sara Baras returns to the Adrienne Arsht Center until March 17 with her company Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras and her new show, Sombras. We sat down with Sara to preview her show and this year's Festival. "Flamenco is an art that goes beyond borders and gets into your heart," explained Sara. In Top Trax, we showcase the latest music from global hitmakers Clean Bandit, What Is Love? Clean Bandit has sold over 40 million singles worldwide and generated over 10 billion streams and 3.5 billion YouTube views. For this album, they joined forces with some of the hottest artists from around the world, including Demi Lovato, Luis Fonsi, Charli XCX, Zara Larsson, Ellie Goulding, and Anne-Marie, amongst others. In Flix, film critic Alyn Darnay tells us why he thinks that Greta is "half of a good film, the first half, where it beams with tangible tension and fearful dread. Then it slowly descends into the realm of the mundane." Check it out and see if you agree with Alyn. In closing, I want to invite you to mark your calendars for the upcoming Miami Beach Pride celebrations taking place April 1-7. As an annual sponsor, we are already hard at work putting together our Miami Beach Pride annual issue. Visit advertise2sell.com if you would like to reach thousands of readers who will be reading this special issue in print and digital format.

FLAMENCO FESTIVAL ara Baras returns to the Adrienne Arsht Center, March 13-17, 2019, with her company Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras for this year's 12th annual Flamenco Festival Miami. Deemed by The Guardian as "A woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane!," Sara will be the star of the Festival. As a fan of Flamenco, with ancestral Spanish blood running through my veins, I attend this outstanding festival every year. Join me by purchasing your tickets, ranging from $25 to $125, at the Adrienne Arsht Center Box OďŹƒce, by calling 305.949.6722, or on their website at arshtcenter.org. Wire Magazine sat down with the one and only Sara Baras to learn about her new show Sombras and preview this year's Festival.

RC: What does Flamenco mean to you? SB: Flamenco is my life and it is present in my way of feeling. Flamenco is art with amazing richness and magnitude. The Flamenco technique is hard. However, I have to forget about it in order to be able to express from the heart. Flamenco is truth, sentiment and passion. RC: Describe yourself as a dancer in 3 words. SB: Dedication, heart and passion.

RC: Why should people come to see your upcoming show? SB: Being able to share our art with the audience is marvelous. I encourage everyone to come to the theater and to feel from their hearts the explosion of energy that the Sombras team produces onstage. RC: What are the 3 biggest accomplishments of your company Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras in its 20 years of history? SB: Hm, I can start and I'd never end. The truth is that the company has always been there and has been very responsive to every challenge. The Sombras team boast respect and admiration for this amazing art, Flamenco. RC: As an ambassador of Spanish culture to the world, why do you feel it is so important to share your country's culture with people around the globe? SB: This is an honor for me as I love this country. It is also a big responsibility, but I am very proud to be able to represent my culture, mainly because I do it on behalf of Flamenco. Flamenco is an art that goes beyond borders and gets into your heart. Thanks to everyone who values this art. RC: Is there anything else you would like to share with Wire Magazine readers? SB: It is a pleasure for me to come back to Miami to this festival that I love so much, and to an amazing audience. The company is doing an excellent job, the Sombras team creates very special energy, and it is honestly a gift to be able to share it.

CLEAN BANDIT

ASKS WHAT IS LOVE?

t's the burning question we all ponder at one time or another. For some of us, the question remains a mystery, while others seem to find the answers more times than they can remember. It can mean so many different things to different people, yet global hitmakers Clean Bandit seem to have all of the answers in their latest collection, What Is Love?

Patterson and Chatto – have the magic touch when it comes to blending emotive lyrics with hypnotic pop. Besides hit singles "Rockabye," "Symphony," "Solo" and their current smash "Baby," featuring Marina (Marina and the Diamonds), What is Love? features tracks that shine a light on life's most coveted and complicated emotion. "The album looks at many different kinds and stages of love," explains Chatto. "We've been making it over three years, during which time we've all experienced love in our lives in different ways and, some of us, heartbreak too. Somehow this is all expressed in the music: brotherly love; family love; romantic love; The caliber of featured vocalists isn't the only crazy all-consuming love; the pain of love turning into something different or disthing that's evolved since the band's debut. honest; and, of course, in 'Rockabye,' unconditional motherly love. It explores the The high-energy house that made New Eyes sacrifices we all go through for love and for each other, even when it is difficult." so electric has been replaced with slower-paced Latin pop and dancehall, giving You might think there's nothing groundbreaking about writing a love song or two, the album a deliciously chill Caribbean vibe. but never has there been an album dedicated to exploring love's many faces with What hasn't changed is the genius of their such flawless finesse while delivering irresistible hooks, unstoppable dance floor long-time producer Mark Ralph (Years & anthems and self-directed, cutting-edge music videos; proving that Clean Bandit is Years), who – along with bandmates Jack still a creative force to be reckoned with!

One of the most successful collectives of the millennium, Clean Bandit has sold over 40 million singles worldwide and clocked over 10 billion streams and 3.5 billion YouTube views. The Grammy Award-winning trio's long-overdue follow-up album arrives four years after their genre-bending debut of New Eyes, which merged electronic house with live classical instrumentation, and catapulted their "Rather Be" singer Jess Glynne into the worldwide spotlight. This time around, they've joined forces with some of the hottest artists from across the globe to weave stories of that mysterious four letter word. Demi Lovato, Luis Fonsi, Charli XCX, Zara Larsson, Ellie Goulding, and Anne-Marie are just a handful of the singers lending their blockbuster voices to this addictive LP. "It's been such an honor to write and record with all of the amazing singers and musicians involved in the record," commented the band's cellist Grace Chatto. "We made the songs all over the world, mainly in North London and LA – some lines were even recorded in a bathroom in Uganda!"

"MEN AND WATER WILL INCLUDE IMAGES THAT INVOLVE WATER, ON AND AROUND BEAUTIFUL MEN IN VARIOUS STAGES OF UNDRESS, FROM FULLY CLOTHED TO TOTALLY NUDE." - DAVID VANCE

amed photographer David Vance has published an array of books of gorgeous men over the years. His new large scale photo book, Men and Water, will include photos that involve water, on and around beautiful men in various stages of undress, from fully clothed to totally nude. David is using crowdfunding to publish his latest book, so Wire Magazine sat down with him to discuss his Kickstarter campaign and preview his Men and Water book. Rafa Carvajal: Tell our readers about your large scale photo book, Men and Water. David Vance: Men and Water will include images that involve water, on and around beautiful men in various stages of undress, from fully clothed to totally nude. The photos are sexy, sensual and fun. The book is 13.5x10.4 inches. It will be 128 pages. Printed in Italy. RC: Why Men and Water and not another topic such as men on the sand, or men in the forest? DV: Although I've lived in this tropical paradise with water all around my whole life, most of my books have been shot in the studio. I, obviously have also shot a lot outdoors, and near the water, but I've never really done a book of those kinds of images. RC: Why did you launch a Kickstarter campaign to publish your book? DV: After several years and several books with Bruno Gmuender in Germany, they are no longer publishing books. Crowdfunding really is my only option. I follow in the footsteps of my friends and fellow photographers, Michael Stokes, Rick Day and Dylan Rosser. #06 2019 WIREMAG.COM 15


16 WIREMAG.COM #06 2019


RC: Until what date will the Kickstarter campaign be running, and how can Wire Magazine readers participate in your Men and Water book campaign? DV: It's scheduled between March 1st and April 1st. Anyone interested in lending their support and getting behind this project can go to wiremag.co/menwaterdv. RC: How did you put together your Men and Water book? DV: It's mostly a selection process. After I have all the images that work with the theme, I start by putting all the images on a board and then carefully and tediously juxtaposing them into a flow of images that feels right. I carefully consider the start, middle and finish so the viewer enjoys the journey through the book. RC: Who are the models you included in Men and Water and where are they from? DV: This is a list of the models whose photos will appear in the book: Joshua Theissen, Reynolds, Mike Caterbone, Sergey Boytcov, Kevin Selby, Craig Moody, Roman Shylakis, Jake Jensen, Aaron McGuire, Jerrad Swodeck, Adam Fletcher, Philippe BÊlanger, Bo Roberts, David Diaz, Allen Clippinger, Ryan Wert, Christian Olivo, Enzo Junior, Jason Whidby, Kevin Jackson, Mario Castelli, Dante Saverio, Andrew Corvin, Stephane Haner, Cristobal Verduga, David Lurs, Casey Christopher, Lance Lamar, Jase Dean, Kyle kier, Patrick Manos, David Gonzalez, Rado Vanko, Raphael Hildebrand, Billy Kiraly, Yanni Demelo, David Fumero, Scott Nicholson, Brandon Vinez, Shawn Russell and Morgan Winsor. These models visit here literally from all over the world. Other than the U.S., there are guys from Russia, Italy, England, Canada, Spain, Slovakia and France. This really works out great for me because my beauty aesthetic is pretty eclectic.

#06 2019 WIREMAG.COM 17


RC: Who is the model on the cover of Men and Water? Tell us about him. DV: He is Italian/Argentine, Luca Angelora. I photographed him several years ago for the cover of DNA. The cool thing about him is he's so beautiful in person, it's a bit intimidating until he smiles with a slight split between his front teeth like Madonna... you just melt because you realize that he's simpatico. He's warm as well as beautiful. RC: How many models are you including in your book, and what criteria did you use to choose them from your very extensive body of work? DV: About 41, I think. I don't really have a specific criteria. When I'm shooting a test with a model, if he fits the project I'm working on, I will just shoot him for it. Sometimes photos end up in the book, not always. RC: What does the art of photography mean to you? DV: It means captivating someone's attention long enough to touch their heart. RC: How do you find the male models for your photography work, and how can someone interested in working with David Vance reach you? DV: Of course, social media is the place to connect. I have models and agents contacting me about shooting. I will also reach out to models on Instagram to see if they're planning on being in the Miami area and would be interested in shooting. I can be reached on Instagram @davidvancephoto; also my email is dmvance@davidvance.com RC: Is there anything else you would like to share with Wire Magazine readers? DV: I appreciate this opportunity to invite your support with this project. I have to reach the goal within 30 days for Men and Water to become a reality. Please consider getting behind this project. I need your help to make it happen. Stop by wiremag.co/menwaterdv and check it out. Thanks!

hese days we've all been trained not to pick up any suspicious packages we see in public places, especially in New York City, especially on a subway. What train rider doesn't know that? The stupidity of picking up such an object forms the basis of this film; it also forms the basis of the total stupidity of watching this disappointing and mundane misfire from Academy Award-winning Director Neil Jordon (The Crying Game, The End of the Affair).

Running Time: 98 minutes

turns out to be Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher whose quaint little apartment is filled with the sounds of Chopin and Liszt and strange noises coming from behind the piano. Frances, who recently lost her mother, finds herself strangely drawn to the lonely widow and strikes up what seems to be a harmless intergenerational friendship with her. As they grow closer, Greta's demeanor becomes increasingly erratic and obsessive. Stumbling on a hidden secret, it soon becomes obvious to Frances that nothing in Greta's life is what it seems to be and she had better end the relationship before it spirals out of control. But, will Greta just go quietly away?
