Hotness is what you want it to be… it can never be a static definition.

The Hot 100 | The most beautiful, bold, and brilliant women in the world.
For this year’s Hot 100, we looked for beautiful and bold women who use their platforms—whether Instagram or celebrity megaphone—to define and express themselves. They are actresses, athletes, musicians, and models, yes, but also brand builders, entrepreneurs, and voices of a generation.

World’s Sexiest Women
Call us prophetic or call us imaginative innovators, there’s something about this List that brings out the best in democracy. Maxim’s Hot 100, the definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women, has once again shown us the power of women and how they’re redefining what “sexy” really means. We’re just applauding.

Framing Humanity | Sebastião Salgado

Superlatives are hard to avoid when describing the work of Sebastião Salgado. Recently, one magazine hailed him as the ‘world’s greatest living photographer’ and while such statements are often thoughtlessly attributed to many lesser mortals, it is difficult to argue against such a claim for the Paris-based artist. Now 73, Salgado is renowned for the epic scale of his photographic projects, involving years of planning, travelling and editing, all with a painstaking devotion to create books as heavy as coffee tables and exhibitions that fill the world’s grandest museums.

“I like to photograph large…there is a lot of information inside my pictures. To have information I must give space and to give space I must give depth of field too.”
