With Port issue 12 hitting shelves December 12 we take a first look at this beautiful short film introducing the latest edition. Featuring legendary Jazz musician Ahmad Jamal, the Pittsburgh-native offers a stripped back version of ‘That’s all’ which should be played on repeat. Editor Dan Crowe offers us some words on another must-read issue.
This issue, our 12th, has been a wonderful issue to work on. From the fascinating story of our new leading man, Chiwetel Ejiofor, to the ludicrous, and very funny, list of likes and dislikes by a certain anchorman named Ron Burgundy, there’s something for everyone. I like the fact that there are luxurious features, such as the photoshoot of Olympic gold medal-winning ice skater Evan Lysacek, in the same issue as a powerful and, to be honest, really quite terrifying look at the war on cancer. We try and curate a diverse collection of stories in every issue, an attempt, I suppose, to reflect the world we live in, to incorporate a wide array of influences, and this issue has achieved that. There’s a horology special, a Port crossword, a long-form photo story on Afghanistan, a look at the future of retail, a diagrammatic explanation of the corruption within football transfer dealing and some very confrontational portraits by Raphael. A wide array indeed!
Have a glorious Christmas
