The theme of HUNGER’s sixteenth issue is Speak Your Truth and focusses on tastemakers across film, music, fashion, art and photography who are breaking boundaries and going the extra mile to spread their truth and messages of positivity in tumultuous times.
Our first cover star is Yara Shahidi, the new voice of a generation and star of the small and silver screen, photographed by Jamie Nelson in a Chanel special editorial in Los Angeles. Next up on the cover is another burgeoning voice of a generation – model and trans right activist Maxim Magnus shot in an empowering fashion editorial by photographer Benjamin Madgwick.
Our final two covers celebrate the diversity of beauty – one a Chanel beauty special featuring Burmese model Beauty Thet Thin and the other an intimate shot of model Gideon Allen by South African photographer Travys Owen.
Elsewhere in the issue we speak to teen heartthrob and star of Riverdale Charles Melton about his experiences of diversity in Hollywood and emerging actress Niamh Algar about her role in The Virtues.
Our art section is guest edited by LA-based photographer Alex Prager whose foreboding work looks at the anxieties buried inside all of us, while in our documentary section we examine the unjust female prison system in the Philippines, go behind the feminist movement in the Bauhaus and speak to photographer, director and hustler Lawrence Schiller about his career documenting some of the most notorious criminal cases of our time.
