Migrate Magazine was released last Friday. It's the Loeries annual magazine put together by Network. They did a really rad job. The cover was designed and illustrated by Johnny Kotze. Angie Batis, Joanne van der Linde and Johnny designed and layed it out and Graeme Jenner did copy. My brother (Jono) and I were asked to contribute whilst interpreting 'Make Your Mom Proud'. I did a series of portraits of people who you conventionally wouldn't associate with making their moms' proud, but in fact do. I photographed a tatooist, an illusionist and stilt walker, a cross dresser, an anarchist and a suicide girl. Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this, I really appreciate it. Here's what we came up with and a cool picture of our Mom.
And here's what Graeme wrote on the profile page about us. Thanks Graeme!
Ross is a lonesome photographer. He has a girlfriend but her mouth is always so full of schnitzel unt sauerkraut that she never talks. Maybe that’s why he’s such a good photographer, he has nothing else to do. He likes to shoot people, but not in the way that Columbine kid did, no… with a camera, silly. See pg. 5
Jonathan stems from the same vagina as Ross, but not at the same time, obviously. Yes, they are brothers, and they clearly share the same creative DNA because they are both clever visual little chaps. Jonathan also wanted to be a photographer but couldnt because he has no face (it was burnt off in a freak chip oil accident in '84) No, not really, I totally made that up. Look what jonathan made on pg.8.
