Our friends at MONTECRISTO magazine sent us the details on their latest issue that just came out. Have you seen it? I just got a copy in my hands and must say it's one of the best yet, definitely my favourite cover of theirs to date which was shot by Clinton Hussey and is explained below. There's also a 2 pager on our new pals at the Waldorf and our very own May Globus made an appearance in the "Society" feature where they shoot snaps of folks at events!
Here's the word from them:
This Winter, MONTECRISTO magazine features stunning still-life photography on its cover. The artwork—put together by photographer Clinton Hussey, set designer Scott Moulton, taxidermy specialist Rachel Poliquin, and the MONTECRISTO team—features various creatures from the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC. A fascinating story in itself, the museum unites six UBC collections under one roof, comprising over two million biological specimens. The largest—an 85-foot long articulated blue whale skeleton—can be seen from the street, suspended in from the room of the museum’s glass atrium.
