The OPC Web Zine Makes Us Want 15 New Best Friends

While we were sleeping, Colin Sussingham and 17 of the model/artists at Other Peoples Children went ahead a dropped an e-zine — and it’s the visual inspiration we didn’t realize we needed.

What we love most is how gleefully attainable the whole thing feels– it could have come off your neighbor’s printer. It’s models, but those models might as well be the coolest people you already know– the casting, styling, and photography isn’t about who can airbrush down to the glossiest version of hyper-perfection, but instead exemplifies how personality can carry through from the model into the media, with more than a nod to the “that could be me” Delia’s aesthetic that we never-won’t-be nostalgic for. You didn’t make this zine, but if wanted to, it’s a world you could actually be part of, and in this late-stage-pandemic moment, when we’re all craving connection, that’s something we need to feel.
