Front Cover: Dance Katrin at a Used Paper Warehouse by Christopher Paul Brown
Cover design by Anthony Michael Morena
Artist’s Statement: I was shooting with model Katrin Dohse when we stumbled upon the open doors of a cavernous warehouse holding piles of bundled, used paper. It was attractive to me for the textures it offered and the fact that no one was around. The space was lit by indirect sunlight coming in through loading docks and sparsely placed skylights. I supplemented this light with a remote control radio flash.
The odor and sound of the place was unique. There was also the mild thrill of trespassing on an active business. I trespass regularly, but usually on abandoned properties. This was an ongoing business, but then, who tries to steal giant bundles of dirty paper? If caught our story would be taken at face value. The space was unique on many fronts, which supported a playful shoot and playful post-production.
