The globally acclaimed photographer and rebel eternal Willy Vanderperre visits Dominique Nzeyimana at the loft.  From pastoral Belgium to the world, during an ongoing and decades-spanning career, Willy Vanderperre has lensed highly influential fashion editorials and campaigns season after season.  When i-D magazine first published young Willy’s work with Raf Simons and the Antwerp Six, it attuned the fashion world at large to his gift. In the following years the most coveted houses and labels like Raf Simons, Jil Sander, Dior, Calvin Klein, Prada, Alaïa and many more all leaned on Willy Vanderperre’s eye for creating culture-shifting and cerebral imagery. As a favoured cover snatcher and editorial contributor, Willy Vanderperre - who has been good friends for years with print god Jefferson Hack - has been published on the pages of DAZED, Another/Another Man, System, DUST, LOVE, W Magazine, Vogue, 032C and more.  Willy Vanderperre has captured modern muses like Frank Ocean, Rihanna, Arca, Lupita N’yongo, A$AP Rocky, Solange, Dev Hynes, The XX, Maharshela Ali, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Willow Smith, FKA twigs, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, Margot Robbie – the list is endless and incredibly impressive.  His art prompts instant recognition: a Willy Vanderperre shot connects rock hard and squarely. His eternal fascination with youth, yearning, isolation, angst and pop culture has burgeoned into a visual language that extends to all senses, whether they’re expressed through stills or moving parts. Various works of his have been on view at prestigious museums like the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and MoMu in Antwerp.  At this particular moment in time, Willy Vanderperre’s first feature film ‘Heartlands’ is setting the underground alight. In a future-classic sit-down, Dominique and Willy discuss the renegade’s upbringing, self-defining spirit & contrarian nature as he has lived his life questioning barriers from rock bottom moments to the top.  Hear how the artist started drawing from a young age & leaned into his own queer expressiveness through fashion and music. Willy also voices his admiration and views on the new generation(s), and how his lauded filmography went through naked, wasted and sacred stages to bloom into ‘Heartlands’ - his breathtaking debut feature film.  A timeless conversation on everything to know from the man himself, sharing priceless morsels on a life and career forged in your own way, with your own unique voice.  Follow The Most: on Instagram. on Facebook.

FARIDA SEDOC

After giving Dominique a private tour of 'Non-Profit At All Cost',  the exhibition she curated at NEST, The Hague, visual artist, curator, fashion & print designer and writer Farida Sedoc takes some time out to look back on her life and practice so far.  From a difficult couple of years at Fashion University over a devastating park brawl that acted as the fire-starter for her multi-layered cult-label ‘HOSSELAER’  to showing work at some of the best museums in The Netherlands & beyond, Farida Sedoc knows what it means to dig deep and persevere.  Her artistic work, interventions and curatorship are crucial in challenging the collective consciousness by centring the often unseen or avoided. With forever ties to big city life, her Surinamese heritage and Hip-Hop culture, her work explores, pushes back & reflects on western dogmas and the influence of money, identity, globalism and politics.  The exhibition ‘Non-Profit At All Cost’ is on until November 6 2022 at NEST The Hague. Info & tickets here.
