Maurizio Cattelan and Richard Phillips Go 3-D for ‘Visionaire 62’

Visionaire, the magazine of fashion and art that is produced in exclusive limited editions as unique, artful objects, has announced that its new issue, Visionaire 62 Rio, will feature a series of 3-D works reinterpreting Rio de Janero, including contributions by artists Pierpaolo Ferrari, Marilyn Minter, Richard Phillips, Vik Muniz, Eli Sudbrack (of Assume Vivid Astro Focus) and Marco Brambilla, as well as retired artist Maurizio Cattelan.

For the issue, a small box which comes replete with a stereoscope (designed and built by aruliden, a NYC-based multidisciplinary design studio) and 3-D art slides, Mr. Cattelan and Mr. Ferrari have photographed the transgender model Lea T, who was born male and now identifies as female, and is the daughter of a well-known former Brazilian football player. Painter Richard Phillips breaks new ground by photographing a sexy woman in a bathing suit, Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima on the Copacabana sidewalk.

In addition to the art component, there will also be all the usual fashion fanfare, like images by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld as well as photos of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, nude in 3-D, naturally.
