About this deal

Sihana Shalaj wears Comme Des Garçons, photographed by Paolo Roversi, styled by Robbie Spencer, 2023

When I was 15 and said I wanted to do photography, my careers officer told me I couldn’t. I struggled with lecturers not getting where I was coming from. One of the responses I got to my work on ragga was: “This doesn’t mean anything – it’s throwaway culture.” How can you assess my work, I wondered, if you’re not even willing to understand the culture I’m a part of?

The Work of Pat Porter, introduced by Charlie Porter, photographs by Kuba Ryniewicz, words by Olivia Laing Luncheon Magazine Issue 1 is available on loremnotipsum.com. Luncheon Issue 1 features: Lunch? I Hate It! Drawings by Michael Lindsay-Hogg; Plain Asparagus Sarah Mower, Manolo Blahnik and Erdem Moralioglu at the Chiltern Firehouse; Lee Miller: Portrait of a Hostess Words by Robin Muir; Grace Wales Bonner In Conversation with Charlie Porter, Photographs by Snowden; Homarus Chic Words by Judith Watt; Nostrovia! Studio Lunch with Paolo Roversi, Adrian Joffe and Julien d’Ys and much more! On the second cover, model Divine Mugisha is photographed by Nadine Ijewere, wearing Maison Alaïa styled by Luncheon’s fashion director-at-large Nell Kalonji, taken from the story in the magazineCouture. And on the third cover, Paolo Roversi photographs the Autumn/Winter collection by Comme des Garçons, worn by model Sihana Shalaj, styled by Robbie Spencer.

Tablecloths by Jeremy Deller, Liam Sparkes and Sophie von Hellermann for Auction on behalf of Dora Brown, founded by Rebecca May Marston I remember seeing this child in a playground. He looked so confident, like he was ready for the world. A young boy riding off into the unknown, the markings on the ground like latitude lines. I was once a little boy like that. It’s all very random, the ideas are born spontaneously at a party, at an exhibition, or with someone I meet by chance. I want the spirit of the magazine to remain free, just like what happens during a lunch; you never know who is seated next to you and what you’ll talk about.

Luncheon Magazine

Luncheon 13 Spring / Summer 2022 Issue – opinions, stories and memories, offering an insight into their unique cultural contributions Product details Painter Alvin Armstrong in conversation with Reginald Moore, alongside a portfolio of his paintings and a portrait by Storm Harper Appearing in an almost impractical 270 x 380mm format Luncheon is immediately impressive. Only Holiday can currently compete with it; the other magazine that comes to mind is the late Acne Paper, so it’s little surprise to find one of the prime movers behind the new mag is Thomas Persson, creative director of Acne Paper.

Luncheonno.15 has three covers. One features a polaroid by iconic Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller –Kitchentaken in the Kensington Motel in Santa Monica in 1985. Müller worked with directors Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch, Lars von Trier, Sally Potter, Peter Handke and Peter Bogdanovich, to name just a few, and created a unique and beautiful visual language on films such asParis, Texas,Mystery TrainandBreaking the Waves. Andrea Müller-Schirmer makes a selection of his polaroids, most often taken in hotel and motel rooms while he was working and travelling. Yes, many times, I was his favorite subject whenever he had a new camera to try, or he wanted to test out a new lens. A real torture! I began my career taking lots of pictures of my mum and have continued to shoot her – I love to work with lots of different types of, and generations of, people. I love the bond there is between this group. You really feel the strength of each individual person – even the little girls. Anthony – the older guy – is one of the most elegant and lovely men I’ve ever met, there’s two sets of sisters in there and most of the group knew each other before the shoot. It feels like an image about community, about standing together, which is particularly appropriate for this present time. This is part of my Summer Reads series where I’ll be sharing book recommendations – a series of “not just cookbooks”.

Growing up, I always wanted to do something artistic, but I wasn’t encouraged to go to university – my teachers suggested I work in a shop. Today I have an MA and PhD in photography and film, but I am continually underestimated. Recently I’ve started feeling a bit more confident about calling people out on this. Things are changing slowly, but it’s a long game. Interview by Imogen Tilden
