Introducing the new issue of Contributor featuring cover star Pamela Anderson. Ever since she entered the pop culture sphere, she has been tirelessly using her celebrity to fight for issues dear to her. The number of causes she campaigns for is staggering. “Activism is sexy,” she says. “Having a meaningful sensual life means caring for others.” In our twelfth print issue we focus on sustainability and explore the theme of ‘nature as culture’ (included in the magazine are three exclusive posters to put on the wall) through the art and photography of Anders Edström, Camilla Åkrans, Ruben Östlund, Daniella Midenge, Nina Andersson, Pakui Hardware, Jenna Sutela, Emile de Visscher, Magnus Magnusson and many more. Available online at contributormagazine.com and in selected stores worldwide.

The theme that runs through our latest print issue is CASTING AND COLLECTIONS. Both are central concepts in fashion. The mechanism behind changes in fashion can be compared to a kaleidoscope. Unreliable pieces of clothing are always in flight, ready to become something else. The key to taking hold of these fleeting moments is usually to look at a designer’s handiwork in detail from collection to collection, since clothing derives its consistency from its role as part of a series. Other paths to finding a narrative in fashion are through styling or photography. Patterns seen through the fashion kaleidoscope can, however, easily be freed of their current meaning. After giving it a few violent shakes, they can go from being interpreted as frivolous to provocative and offensive, by rearranging the compositions and shaping themselves into different meanings. By using the kaleidoscope as a metaphor for fashion in this issue entitled CASTING AND COLLECTIONS, we look back at the modernist writers of the early twentieth century who frequently returned to the image of the optical instrument in their writings. When describing the modern experience in “Arcades Project,” Walter Benjamin for one, writes that: “Every age unavoidably seems to itself a new age. The ‘modern,’ however, is as varied in its meaning as the different aspects of one and the same kaleidoscope.
Read the interview for our anniversary issue with one of the actresses getting the most interesting parts in international movies right now. To no one’s surprise, as she’s become known for her hard work developing her characters. If the background story isn’t comprehensive enough, she’ll develop or create her own stories. The women she portrays can be fragile, broken and scarred, but when Noomi embodies them they are never reduced to victims.
