‘I really lucked out on the location,’ says Carter of the factory-turned-studio space in Montreal where he photograph­ed some of Canada’s most inspiring new design, ahead of a 2021 exhibition (page 038, and on our newsstand cover). ‘The way the light streamed through the large windows – it was quite delicate.’ The day of the shoot, Carter heard he’d been accepted into grad school; he’s now working on his master’s thesis at NSCAD University, Halifax.



Ranger collaborat­ed with photograph­er Gabby Laurent on this month’s main fashion story, featuring womenswear from the S/S21 and resort collection­s (page 100). ‘Gabby came up with the concept of “the swoon”,’ says Ranger of the shoot, which is full of movement. ‘It was also exciting to work with model Mammina Aker, as I have long admired her elegance – she also made me swoon,’ adds Ranger, who is currently working on a project about young female skaters.



Sean Scully is a master of stripes, stacks and, as we discovered for this month’s artist’s recipe, pancake flipping (page 114). Unlike the forms in his paintings and sculptures, Scully’s pancakes never get the chance to form a stack as they’re eaten too rapidly after leaving the pan. It’s been a busy year for the artist, with concurrent shows at Waldfriede­n Sculpture Park in Germany and the Hungarian National Gallery. He will stage his first show with Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris, in spring.



We asked Sangar, a 2020 photograph­y graduate of Middlesex University, to shoot some of her contempora­ries for the fashion pages of our annual showcase of new creative talent (page 071). ‘It was an eyeopening experience to shoot for Wallpaper* in such a beautiful studio, and to see how the other photograph­ers work,’ says Sangar, who is currently working on Heston Kids, an exploratio­n of growing up as a spirited South Asian girl in south-east London.



Abrams, a London-based arts and culture writer, interviewe­d Kudzanai-violet Hwami (page 044), the young Zimbabwebo­rn artist who also designed this month’s limited-edition cover. ‘I love the colour and compositio­n of the paintings and the humanity of her portraits,’ says Abrams, who was equally impressed by Hwami’s strong presence. ‘She gave great answers.’ Abrams co-presents the monthly Roaring 20s Radio show on Soho Radio.



Based in Stockholm, Nicolausso­n is known for his slightly surreal, slightly nostalgic drawings in pastel colours. He illustrate­d our W* House feature in July 2019 (W*244), and, for this issue, brings another interiors story to life with his distinctiv­e vision (page 090). ‘Drawing furniture is always fun because I get to go up close with the work of other designers and a discipline other than my own,’ says Nicolausso­n. ‘It enables me to look at – and appreciate – product design in a new way.’
