To celebrate the launch of our Vegas-centric issue (featuring Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and the Backstreet Boys on four separate covers), PAPER teamed up with photographer Steven Rico to create a teaser video giving a peak into our unique vision of Vegas.
"I've always thought of Las Vegas as a mecca of Americana, a theme I've been focusing on in my recent work," Rico said. "I love the lux, extravagant exteriors and bright lights paired with the seedy underbelly of a city run by vice. The video plays with some Vegas cliches and jumps between the spectacle, glamour and mysticism of Sin City."
