An edition that discovers and unveils the upsides in life. As editor-in-chief and founder of Coulture, I set the theme for this issue: “The Upside.” Vibrant photoshoots and colorful design help celebrate featured change-makers, who use their talents to craft a silver lining for more than just themselves.
I wrote the letter from the editors with my co-founder, setting a positive tone for the ensuing pages.
Based on the reality-defying still life sets that define pop-art photography, I concepted and directed a pop-art-style shoot that draws life from careful color blocking and ignites the imagination.
Our Westworld shoot married balloons and saloons. I dreamed up the initial vision: Western garb, in rich and satisfying hues, injects new life into rustic, faded surroundings. After driving through rural North Carolina to scout locations that resembled the wild west, I directed the shoot.
As editor-in-chief, I manage production of the magazine from start to finish. I set the higher-level theme for each issue, edit content, direct photoshoots and supervise graphic design. Check out the full issue below.
