For our annual Photo Issue, we took a hard look at the sort of things we like to look at. Over the next week, we'll be releasing stories about political art, party pics, and everything in between—who makes these images, how do they make them, and why do they affect us? We've also got a gorgeous photo essay from Bronx photographer Elle Perez, who takes black-and-white pictures of underground wrestlers in her home borough.
For the cover stories, Hua Hsu hit the road with
comedy's most inspiring slacker, Hannibal Buress, and Drake's most important cosign, PARTYNEXTDOOR, gave Felipe Delerme his first interview ever. For our featured profile on the WEDIDIDIT collective, Emilie Friedlander went to L.A. to investigate Shlohmo and friends' professionally unprofessional empire.
