LONDON COLLECTIONS: Backstage at Christopher Shannon AW13
“Obsessive, compulsive, re-order” was the order of the day at Christopher Shannon, inspired by the towering piles of clothes found in hoarders’ homes. We go backstage to find out if there’s any method to the madness.

Juno Calypso specialises in elaborately glossy photographic set-ups – and has her tongue firmly planted in cheek. Her arch, unsettling photography landed her an appearance in the soon-to-be-launched Catlin Guide 2013, the definitive artistic British Who’s Who of graduate talent. Wonderland dive in.

The Australian photographer and filmmaker extraordinaire is behind some of the most iconic photos and music videos of the past decade, including Antony & The Johnson's Cut the World' and Frank Ocean's 'Pyramids'. Wonderland get into the mind of […]
EMERGING: Tom Beard
Tom Beard’s shot everyone from Florence Welch to Hercules & Love Affair, but his own personal photography’s a much more downbeat, street-wise affair: mice in their death throes, little paws clutching at air; boys on a council estate staring suspiciously at the outsider in their midst. Wonderland talks to Twickenham boy made good.
EMERGING: Kim Jakobsen To
Norwegian-turned-Londoner Kim Jakobsen To has shot for everyone from Acne to Canon (and Wonderland, of course), but it's his unpretentious, intimate and entirely lovely portraits that really caught our eye. We talk to him about Birdland, his exhibition at Rove Gallery.

London Fashion Week: Backstage at Aminika Wilmont, Fashion Fringe and Nasir Mazhar S/S 2013

EMERGING: Antonio Marguet
Surreal, plastic and really rather fantastic: that’s Antonio Marguet‘s photography to a tee. Ahead of his solo show at Hirst-owned gallery Other Criteria, we talk to the Saatchi Gallery New Sensations shortlist-er about his hyper-glossy art.
EMERGING: Josh Greet
We’ve all spent our share of time scrolling Tumblr’s infinite supply of animated gifs, but young photographer Josh Greet took things further and started making his own. And in between shooting gifs for Adidas Originals and Illustrated People, the Plymouth College of Art graduate isn’t short of work.

Sao Paulo photographer Gustavo Lacerda made waves across the Internet for his delicate, haunting portrait series Albinos. We sat him down to ask what spurred on this project.

TWELFTH MAN PROJECT: The alternative Olympians
Olympics coverage has (already) hit saturation point and we’re bored of seeing super-serious athletes with their game face on. That’s why the Twelfth Man Project is so refreshing: photos of everyday Londoners in their best sporting gear, beautifully set against the hustle and bustle of the city. We interview Matt Cottis about his collaboration with […]
DENNIS MORRIS: This Is The One
Dennis Morris is the first man of British music photography – bar none. His iconic pictures of Bob Marley and Johnny Rotten have graced the walls of many a first-year uni student’s walls. This time, he’s back with a photo book of the Stone Roses, This Is The One. Wonderland talks to the maestro himself.
MARCO SANGES: Phantasmagoria
