Featured in this issue

We live in a world suspended between fantasy and reality, where the onslaught of technology only continues to hurtle us into an unknown future and our everyday realities twist somewhere between a fantasy and a nightmare. Issue 15 of Hunger magazine, Fantasy Meets Reality, explores this theme, using fantasy and technology to inspire its editorials, yet grounding its narrative in reality, featuring people that continue to keep it real and speak their truth amid the constant flurries of 'alternative facts'. This issue Hunger presents four covers – actress and star of Spike Lee’s Blackkklansman Laura Harrier shot by photographer and Instagram sensation Renell Medrano in LA, rising actress and Instagram-alt girl Bria Vinaite shot on location in New York, Hollywood stalwart Liv Tyler photographed by Rankin in a shoot inspired by old cinema and black and white movies, and a special art cover devised by Rankin and his long time collaborator Andrew Gallimore. Inside the issue we speak to recent Emmy award-winner and star of American Crime Story: Gianni Versace Darren Criss, meet music’s new it-boy Bazzi and reminisce about the Studio 54 heyday with original supermodel Pat Cleveland. Elsewhere we interview Jean Paul Gaultier about the fantasy behind fashion and his debut theatre show, while in our art section Anja Niemi, James White and Tishk Barzanji discuss fantasy and reality in the art world. In our documentary section award winning filmmaker Amy Berg gives a rare interview about her upcoming project, a new documentary delving further into the case of Adnan Syed, first depicted on viral podcast Serial. Photographer Hunter Barnes uncovers a new side to Las Vegas and Builder Levy discusses 50 years working as a protest photographer – capturing everyone from Malcolm X to Martin Luther King. Our fashion section suitably depicts our theme – with our collections story the product of a collaboration with four digital artists to interpret fashion for the Instagram age. Elsewhere we look at the influence of technology on teenagers in our menswear editorial Game Over and contemplate a life of solitude in Wayfaring Stranger, a nomadic shoot set in the rural landscape of South Africa.

For issue 14 of Hunger we are redressing the balance of power. Throughout the issue a selection of powerful female talent offset the narrative as we look at how power is portrayed in our current society while examining the power of femininity through fashion and photography. Our cover star is the Oscar winning actress and star of Tomb Raider Alicia Vikander who appears in a 16 page feature shot by Rankin. In her interview she discusses the changing landscape of Hollywood and how she prepared for the toughest role of her career, Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Elsewhere in the issue we speak to transgender model and activist Munroe Bergdorf, breakouts star of Beach Rats Harris Dickinson, rising music stars Rex Orange County and Jessie Reyez and The Handmaid’s Tale actress Yvonne Strahovski, who tells us why the multi-award winning series is a cautionary tale for the new generation. Our guest art editor for this issue is the enigmatic Saint Hoax, the pseudonymous Syrian artist with half a million Instagram, followers. Ahead of his exhibition in Beirut this year he gives his views on the Trump administration and why nothing is off limits in art. In our fashion section we focus on subverting famed film roles in our 24 page Collections story, Trading Places, examine the nuances of modern masculinity in gender fluid story Pink Cashmere and document the changing shape of women’s silhouettes through the ages in A Room of One’s Own. Elsewhere our fashion director travels to Rome to shoot a story in new exhibition Fendi Studios, using archive costumes from films such as Evita and The Devil Wears Prada, and iconic photographer Ellen von Unwerth runs riot at the club Manko in Paris for a riotous shoot featuring all of the city’s biggest characters.
