Meetings with Remarkable Men. This title of a famous book by Georges I. Gurdjieff inspires the latest L’Uomo Vogue, which is free with Vogue Italia in November (but also available to buy separately). In fact, “remarkable people and places” is the fitting theme for the magazine’s second issue, following its recent return to newsstands with a fresh editorial formula, a new graphic layout, and articles (also) in English to engage an increasingly international readership.
The new issue therefore tells us about extraordinary places, described by photographers and writers who have opened their book of memories to take readers on a journey to special corners of the world.
The people portrayed are exceptional too. There are emerging actors such as Joe Alwyn (we’ll be seeing him in five new films) and stars like Richard Gere. There are LGBTQ families from New York photographed by Ethan James Green, and Hungarian cowboys captured by the lens of Tom Johnson. There are the most outstanding new names in menswear as well as the top fashion authors of the international press.
Then there are the men whom Paolo Roversi has selected and portrayed for L’Uomo Vogue, compiling a sensational portfolio that includes his sons, lifelong friends, young actors and old colleagues, perfect strangers and illustrious fellow photographers like Peter Lindbergh. Roversi explains: “It happens in an instant: you see one of those faces and you think, I want to photograph you.
