Jonah And Christian For Issue 9

6 March 2019

“My Twitter bio is a Disney quote, which is ‘that is the real trouble with the world, people grow up and they forget’. I don’t think I am ever going to grow up to a certain extent. Why should I?”

Don’t you just want to escape from the big scary world sometimes? To delve into a world of your own and be whoever and whatever you want to be? Imagine you can unfurl the pages of Issue 9, "Growing Sideways", delving head first into a meranderie of dreams, ambitions and boyhood. Just do it. Sometimes it is the only way to keep sane. This is something Jonah and Christian know all too well.

Editor-in-Chief, Cecilie Harris photographs British twin actors Jonah and Christian Lees in a monochromatic series that mirrors their playful and creative nature. In a 10-page spread you get to discover the pair as story tellers, as they bring their adventurous charisma before the lens. The interview gives an insight into how their adventurous childhood has been brought into adulthood and turned them into talented actors, who will be on the big screen in March 2016 in movie "Tale of Tales" with fellow actor Salma Hayek (which we all must see by the way, cause they play albino twins with different mothers. Just saying).

Styled by David Nolan in a Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane exclusive, Jonah and Christian takes on characters as they get lost in the images created together with Cecilie. The below preview is just a snippet of what the print issue holds, so to fulfil yours lives and get lost in the tale of the twins you can get your copy in stores or via our website now.
