Speaking in Code
While posing for all the world to see, Kent Ho had a mind to keep something hidden
ent Ho was a really good sport during our cover shoot, gamely jumping and falling about at the direction of photographers Nic and Bex Gaunt with an unselfconscious ease no doubt honed by doing not one but four separate engagement shoots around the world before marrying his sweetheart, Emily Lam. The tech connoisseur, who had cooked a special Valentine’s Day meal for his wife a few days earlier, was in constant communication with his other half throughout the day. His phone kept buzzing with messages from Emily, who was keen to ensure we captured the “cute dimple” on his right cheek. In chats between takes, Kent persuaded our equally tech-obsessed creative director to add a secret message to the cover encrypted in binary code. Can you deduce what it says?
