For the cover story of the A/W 2018 issue of Dazed, Wolfgang Tillmans has photographed Dev Hynes in a series of intimate portraits.
The feature, written by Durga Chew-Bose, is hooked to the release of the new Blood Orange album, Negro Swan, and both the interview and Tillmans’ photographs convey Hynes’ ability to turn vulnerability into power.
Negro Swan intimately explores black experience, and of the album, Dev says: “There’s a lot of trash in the world and I don’t wanna add to it, you know? If I have to put something out there, I wanna be so certain of it, and feel so good about it”.
Dazed A/W 2018 is out on Thursday 13th September.
