Kez Glozier first dreamt of making his own magazine over three years ago. Eighteen months later he set about creating The New British. Investing all of his time and himself in piecing together his recently released glossy, slick, self-published modern culture manual, the Jed Root-signed illustrator went in on this project, underground. Collaborating with former art director of The Face, Neville Brody and attempting to represent his own instantly identifiable aesthetic through the dark and stark layout of the publication’s final edit, Kez commissioned prolific writers, photographers and stylists to contribute to the first issue. Going back to basics, Nick Knight shot raw, brutal punk band Man Flu for the front cover, and features include work from Anton Corbijn, Kevin Cummings, Dean Chalkley, Ben Marshall and Craig McDean.
Representing people on a wider scale, The New British honestly captures our current social climate and presents life as it stands. Stripped back, exposed and unique, Kez has created a beautiful anthology of what it means to be British today. On his influences and inspirations, Kez commented, “For me it’s about music. We have a massive focus on music and everything else comes through that, like subculture… it all matters, especially now.” i-D online flicked through the first copy with camera shy Kez (see video).
