Port #19

Issue 19 of PORT marks the second part of our fifth anniversary celebration. In it, we meet the people and personalities at the vanguard of their industries, be it style, culture or design, and hear about their unique vision for the future of their craft.

From Boyhood to fatherhood, PORT gets a rare glimpse into the life and mind of the cult-film star Ethan Hawke, who talks to Rachel Syme about maturing as an artist, family, and his passions beyond the silver screen.

Our second cover star, Juno Calypso, returns to the Pennsylvanian love hotel to shoot some exclusively imagery, and speaks to Emma Bowkett about creating her character Joyce, rooting for the underdog and taking inspiration from Jeff Wall.

Photographer Frédéric Lagrange captures arresting landscapes and remarkable characters – from camel herders to the congregations flocking to its monolithic churches – in a journey into the heart of Ethiopia.

Will Wiles, meets the venerable John Pawson – the British architectural designer charged with crafting London’s new design museum, set to open in Autumn 2016. This issue also sees the launch of our brand new watch supplement, TENTEN – an intelligent, and in-depth take on contemporary horology.

Also in the issue:
Commentary: Kalpesh Lathigra describes the experience of photographing a revolt in Turkey’s Taksim Square as it unfolded around him; Brian Patrick Eha meets the company at the forefront of creating ‘digital babies’; and triple-amputee photographer Giles Duley shares the story of some of the victims at the centre of the global refugee crisis.

Fashion: Overseen by PORT‘s new fashion director, Dan May, the style section includes our favourite looks from the Autumn Winter 2016 Collections and an extensive editorial, styled by Alex Petsetakis, shot at the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Design: Celebrated garden designer Dan Pearson shares and intimate conversation with his brother Luke – founder of industrial design studio PearsonLloyd. Elsewhere, we visit the factories of three international design brands, Flos, Coalesse and Vitsoe, for an R&D special feature.

The Porter: Grammy award-winning musician Esperanza Spalding writes about the album that soundtracked her childhood; two-Michelin star chef Hélène Darroze considers the virtues of a Basque staple ingredient; we take a closer look at a classic teapot by visionary designer Christopher Dresser; and Bob Marley and The Specials collaborator Dick Cuthell sings the praises of those lesser-known brass instruments
