From Visionaire: “WORLD, sponsored by Gap, is the most democratic issue of Visionaire to date. And it all began with a simple chain letter and a brief that asked everyone — anyone, in fact — to submit one photo of what life looks like in their part of the world. Within months, Visionaire had amassed thousands of images. The chosen 250 works were bound in a Cheetos-orange corduroy book and tucked inside a matching tote bag, designed by Emma Hill, who went on to become creative director at Mulberry. For photographer Craig McDean, whose contribution ultimately combined elements of several different locales, the issue summed up life at that very moment. ‘I did a collage because, at the time, my definition of –world- could not be represented by one place,’ McDean explains. ‘The elements of the collage include shots of London I took when I was working there as a photographer and the L.A. beach at which my daughter and I spent a lot of time.’ The work underscored McDean’s understanding of the world as constantly evolving. ‘Elements like architecture and geography are never static—they are always moving, growing, changing.’ WORLD sought to capture exactly that.” No writing, highlighting, names, or other markings.
