Into the Wild by Rochelle Brodin

Technology advances fast. We went from analogue to digital in a span of 10 years during the 2000’s. Where do you think the future of photography is going?

I have a small confession. I’ve never shot with a film camera nor been in a dark room. I know, I know. But I have, however, been shot as a model with medium format film and used a loop and red wax pencil to choose my photos. I think the future of photography is going to happen in two parts. First, in moving photos and video clips. (for example: GIF files, cinemagraphs, plotographs, drone photography and lots of VR). Second, Polaroids will get better and some fashion photographers will go back to film and lots of photos will have that raw, analog edge to them.

Vanity Fair began 2017 with stunning back-lot portraits of one of the world’s biggest movie stars, Jennifer Lawrence, and somehow managed to go up from there. From the Hollywood Portfolio to the on-set shoot with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi cast to the cover story on future princess Meghan Markle, it was another year of Vanity Fair-provided unparalleled access to the people that fascinate us the most. Ahead, a look back at Vanity Fair’s eventful 2017, in photographs.

Timeless Classic | Superocean Héritage II

To mark the sixtieth anniversary of this iconic timepiece, Breitling has released its redesigned Superocean Héritage line. While the Superocean Héritage II retains the DNA of its predecessor, the horologists at the Breitling Chronoworks Performance Labs have imbued these beauties with a couple of contemporary updates. The main development is a new steel bezel with an ultra-hard high-tech ceramic ring that is scratchproof and extremely shock resistant. The Superocean Héritage II is available in two watch sizes (42 and 46mm) and as a 46mm chronograph, all available in three colours: black, blue and bronze.
