Fashion and beauty photographer Koray Birand—who lives in Istanbul but splits his time between London, Paris and Munich—is branching out to yet another fashion publication this year. Having been a regular for Harper’s Bazaar Turkey since 2010, it looks like that he is now a favourite for Vogue Mexico and Latin America too, with 3 slots this year! He photographed the March, April, and October issues respectively with cover girls Isabeli Fontana, Hana Jirickova, and Princess Salwa Aga Khan aka Kendra Spears.
David Roemer, Nagi Sakai, and Marcin Tyszka also worked more than once for the monthly fashion publication. New Mexico born David Roemer shot the January and November issue with Jacquelyn Jablonski and Behati Prinsloo (both models participated in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show). Tokyo born Cairo raised photographer Nagi Sakai snapped the magazine’s February and June covers with Toni Garrn and Mirte Maas, while Warsaw native Marcin Tyszka also shared the same amount of cover stint as the previously mentioned David Roemer and Nagi Sakai. He shot fellow Polish Anja Rubik and Zuzanna Bijoch on the magazine’s May and July covers.
That leaves us with Mariano Vivanco (Peruvian) who shot Candice Swanepoel for September issue, Alique (Dutch) who snapped fellow Dutch Anna de Rijk for August edition, Ruven Afanador (Colombian) who shot First Lady of Colombia for the magazine’s special cover for the Spanish speaking country, and rising duo Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello (both Argentinian) who photographed actress Scarlett Johansson for December issue.
What happened to Flare!? Eversince they had this major makeover earlier this year, their covers are being less attractive. As you can see in the image above, they even got several different type of fonts which gave us the impression that they still haven’t found the perfect one.
Our favourite this year are Lea Michele‘s January issue by Max Abadian, Olivia Munn‘s July issue by Autumn De Wilde (eventhough the masthead looks like British GQ, but the striking image makes up for it), and Flare‘s fave model Arlenis Sosa on their August issue shot by Jason Kim.
The rest of the covers this year that doesn’t impressed us were featuring singer Paulina Gretzky (who?), model and Maybelline spokesperson Charlotte Free, host and writer Alexa Chung, and actresses such as Diane Kruger, Christina Hendricks, Greta Gerwig, Amber Heard, Kerry Washington, and Kristen Bell.
Flare used to be one of those fashion magazines who delivers great covers line up, especially in the past three years. They better figure out how to make striking covers again, very soon!
