King Kong Garcon Issue 6 / featuring:

// Mirwais

Mirwais is an artist who has left an incredible mark on an era of music and becoming, in the process, one of the greatest producers of his time.

In conversation with Pop author, Alex Kazemi they discuss the deconstruction of the simulation and delve into the psychology of MIRWAIS’s new album “RETROFUTURE”

“We are in a BIMBO LAND! Pop culture exists as a mutation. Maybe I am the only one in the world, who thinks this but all these people in the simulacra are in fact avatars, and avatars of billionaires.  Everyone thinks artificial intelligence will be Skynet. We are living in it right now”.

How do you want me? Let me count the ways…any way you like…or I like…or we like! legs and leather, pin-up boys and dressed down dandies. Wanna have a peek?

// Uniform

There’s nothing uniform about uniforms. What’s on the outside may not be on the inside. Power games are shifted, and what you wear is not quite how they wore it. Then, now, time and memory shifts. Mixed up metaphors. Blurred edges.

// Sunil Gupta

It is what it is. What you see is what you get. Two men. Together. Two people. Different and the same. A word which joins people and splits opinions. Together forever v divide and conquer. These are just words. They don’t matter. Not really. It’s the feelings which count. And they’re on display here. Photographer Sunil Gupta born in New Delhi, living in London is a product of this city couple. Graduating from the Royal College of Art in the 80’s, in a period where gay life and society underwent massive changes. And Sunil was part of them. In this issue of Garçon he is interviewed by Klaus Wehner and talks about his work, his struggles and the importance of justice and visibility. It’s all laid out in this issue. There to be seen and thought about. After all seeing is believing.

//Tom Mercier

Tom Mercier has said that he uses his roles to look at himself. To experience himself through another’s life. To know oneself, is to play someone else. Involvement at a distance, self-examination through acting. Looking at others, and seeing himself. Or not quite. The photo shoot gets this sense of obeservant otherness, photos situated somewhere but nowhere in particular. On the edge. Like his characters in the film Synonymes, and the TV series We are who we are. Both had him playing the role of the outsider in search of a reason. Answer still pending.

//Tess McMillan

Dendrophilia – to be in love with trees – emotionally, spiritually, sexually, totally. Tree hugging for comfort. The trunk firm and hard. Supportive. Branches like arms. Stretching, reaching, outwards and upwards. Twigs like fingers, delicate and feeling. Leaves giving shade. Leaning against a tree, feeling its strength, wrapping yourself around its girth. Not letting go. Letting yourself be part of something far bigger and older. Hearts of Oak. Pines. Cedars. Woodlands. Forests.

//Aaron Altaras

Aaron Altaras is an actor who acts up in the best possible way. He’s always chosen roles that demand commitment, understanding and soul. To act well you need to learn and to laugh. To be able to take things but not yourself seriously.

//Rear Bird

Birds of Paradise flock together in all the colours of the rainbow! From a fine head of hair, to a full-on bush, the locks you see are lustrous and lush. The shots are all so gorgeously eccentric, from crowning glory to down there pubic. This rear bird dazzles the viewer with technicolor rinses, and proves that hair anywhere can always be dressed for any occasion…

//Tutti Frutti

Mixing the rough with the smooth, muscles with ruffles, thrills and frills, this shoot underlines the power of masculinity through the softness of femininity. The cliche of the tough in tulle, the iron fist in a velvet glove, the paradox of the harder you are, the softer you’ll feel. It takes a real man to cross over to the macho bridge to Girlsville.
