When I started putting this list together, I realized that since 2011, I've been doing about 70 shoots per year for PAPERMAG. This sounds like a lot of work, but it never feels like it: most of the shoots I do are pitch-based/self-assigned, and I feel incredibly lucky that PAPER has supported my vision in this way. I think the reason it's been such a natural fit is because we share the conviction that fashion, style, and beauty are ultimately about more than just aesthetics -- they're equally about character, attitude, confidence, and intelligence -- and we share a passion for finding examples in culture that embody this viewpoint. With my work, I aim to create images that explore this balance, and sometimes tension, between beauty and authenticity. Below is a selection of 10 of my favorite images from the year that investigate this relationship.
