From horny blogger Karley Sciortino of Slutever, to trans-Voguer Tamara Warren, albino model Shaun Ross, established painter Lola Schnabel and new curator Cecilia Gehring, these young boys and girls are the total package, making their mark on culture right now. Meet Roxie Darling, the best young colourist in NYC and head down to the Ghetto Gothik party hosted by DIS Magazine‘s Patrik Sandberg, starring Ashland Mines. Some people remain nameless because they are currently bombing the shit out of New York City streets with spray cans. Photographed at Andre Saraiva’s solo show, Andrepolis, the art-ed city after dark highlights how clubs like Andre’s Le Baron attracts people to come together and party. In a city like New York most of the collaboration comes from hanging out, and all these people have partied together or collaborated on art projects, music, design, fashion and styling. Many of them have been styled by Guillaume Boulez of The Wild Magazine, or wound up at Westway with artist Bijouz Altamirano behind the bar. Most have been photographed at some point by up and coming photographers Sandy Kim and Andrea Sonnenberg, or shared a bottle of wine at Zac Bahaj’s restaurant The Pink Pony.
