I’m moving house at the moment and trying to decide which possessions will make the move with me and which are headed for that great recycling bin in the sky. One thing that will definitely be coming with me is my magazine collection. Yes, they are heavy and a bit unwieldy but it’s worth carting them to the new apartment for the pleasure and inspiration they bring. I think of a great magazine with great photography and great writing as a work of art and not something to be tossed lightly aside. My favorite magazine of the year so far is the current issue of French Playboy with Lou Doillon on the cover. Her photos inside by Takis Bibelas have more in common with a Helmut Newton shoot than they do with anything you might see in an American “men’s” magazine. The entire issue is a special fashion issue. There is also a great article with cool photos of the neon and rough edges of Paris’ Boulevard de Clichy. The Juergen Teller photo story in the issue is unmissable as well. – x eddie
