If you’re a Nikon fan, then you’re in good company! Robert Pattinson uses a Nikon DSLR to shoot his GQ cover photo
If you were a teenage girl at the height of Twilight mania, the current Robert Pattinson renaissance couldn’t have come sooner. Over the past decade, Pattinson has been quietly proving his acting chops by working on a slew of excellent independent films. However, with two big blockbusters looming on the horizon (Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and a Batman reboot), he’s bursting back into mainstream cinema with a bang.

Robert Pattinson uses a Nikon camera to shoot his own GQ cover
To bring to life the theme of our 65th anniversary issue—is freedom of expression absolute in our country?—we tapped 27-year-old internet sensation and art director Marius Sperlich. This marks the first time in 19 years that PLAYBOY has commissioned a visual artist for our cover, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result: Sperlich’s macrophotography imbues an undoubtedly American cultural moment with the ironies and injustices surrounding free expression and censorship in the United States. Phases of Sperlich’s creative process appear above. “Change is in the air as a new generation of ideas takes hold,” he says. “Demonstrations are the embodiment of unity—people banding together from all walks of life for a cause. The censored nipple functions as the poster child for a much broader problem of social injustice, and our protestors want to know: Is this really the land of the free?”
At the center of the conversation, our Rabbit poses an important question. Cover art by Marius Sperlich.
