Visionaire 61 LARGER THAN LIFE initially broke the World Record at 36 x 49.48 inches in size. In an effort to break their own record, a Deluxe Edition at 57.48 x 79 inches, almost 5 X 7 feet as been created!
In this gigantic issue, Visionaire gives iconic artists and image-makers the forum to take their visions to a massive scale. No contemporary figure symbolizes LARGER THAN LIFE more than the global pop phenom Lady Gaga, who graces the front and back covers in two stunning portraits by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Other contributors to the issue include photographers Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, Mario Sorrenti, and Bruce Weber; artists Doug Aitken, Maurizio Cattelan & Pierpaolo Ferrari, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, Rob Pruitt, Ed Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Sam Taylor-Wood, Josephine Meckseper & Richard Phillips, Marina Abramovic & Martin Schoeller, Guido Mocafico, and Massimo Vitali; fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld, and filmmaker Ridley Scott.
