BE­HIND THE SCENES

FROM A STU­DIO TO AN MMA GYM – WE’VE TRAV­ELLED FAR AND WI DE THIS IS­SUE.

GQ (Australia) - - ONLINE -

very No­vem­ber, we spread our­selves across the coun­try in the name of GQ Men of the Year. Trav­el­ling to the home­towns and cre­ative do­mains of the men and women hon­oured with a MOTY award, we seek to fill the pages of this mag­a­zine with pro­files of those who have, in their own unique ways, made a pro­found im­pact on 2018. This time around, we flew to Europe with El­iz­a­beth De­bicki and to LA with Lucky Blue Smith. We en­tered the ring with Aus­tralia’s most suc­cess­ful UFC fighter, Robert Whit­taker, al­beit ner­vously, dur­ing a train­ing ses­sion at his lo­cal Jiu-jitsu gym in Syd­ney’s west. Days be­fore the open­ing of his lat­est solo show, artist Jamie Preisz let us in on his cre­ative process and the raw emo­tion that drives it, as he showed us through his loft stu­dio. And yes, Body Hack’s Todd Samp­son is as fas­ci­nat­ing in per­son as he is on TV. An un­flat­ter­ing bloop­ers reel and 20 pro­files later, we bring you our 2018 Men (and Women) of the Year.
