Fashion magazine, The Most Beautiful Man In The World sets out to celebrate and explore the beauty of men.
TMBMW has undergone a dramatic change of format for this, the fifth issue. Shedding it's original tabloid style format for a more diminutive yet refined 132 page, perfect-bound volume.
'For the first four issues of The Most Beautiful Man in the World, we travelled around the world to photograph interesting, intriguing (and yes) handsome men. For issue five, we felt it time to stay close to home. This is our British edition.
Appropriately, we started right at home at my apartment in Deptford, south east London where we photographed James on the roof terrace. James is a plumber by trade and though it had occurred to me that he would make a great addition to TMBMITW, it wasn’t until my friend was staying from the States that we decided to ask him to sit for us. Happily, he agreed. The results close this issue.
But The Most Beautiful Man in the World, as the name suggests, is a magazine that travels so we looked for stories across the UK, from the skylines of Newcastle to the beaches of Sussex. Along the way we crushed hard on the men we photographed, like young footballer Kieran in the Forest of Dean. But our hearts also belonged to a girl in this issue. When we travelled to Herefordshire we fell in love with Sophie, an abandoned lamb.
The British actor that caught our eye on Broadchurch was Jonathan Bailey, who is this issue’s cover star and a man as swoonsome as the sensational coastline depicted in the show.
For TMBMITW’s fifth edition we hoped to capture a well rounded vision of contemporary Britain. There are nods to tradition in the Henley Royal Regatta. There is a snapshot of that most modern icon, the Great British service station.
Most importantly, there are beautiful men.' -TMBMITW
