Document Fall/Winter 2016

From Naples to Beijing, this special issue of Document is dedicated to the people and places around the world that have impacted culture as a whole. We spoke with Tilda Swinton and Charlotte Rampling, who have both undertaken a very personal and photographic project with fashion historian Olivier Saillard. We traveled to Montauk with Bruce Weber, upstate New York with Ryan McGinley, and to Paris with Willy Vanderperre. We ventured to the Museum Gugging, just outside of Vienna, with Christopher Kane to explore creativity. We connected with Jane Birkin on the 25th anniversary of Serge Gainsbourg’s passing to reflect on love.

We went to Baltimore to DeRay Mckesson to advocate the importance of change. From Tokyo, Rei Kawakubo shares a rare insight into her creative process. Certainly not least, we visited Nestor Siré, the driving force behind Cuba’s strong, underground art network, in Havana. As our scale grows, geographically but also in terms of our family and contributors, the focus has stayed the same: to ask questions and document the blending of viewpoints with a similar fascination, intellect and beauty.
