So you want to be a legend, huh? Well before you embark on this quest—or continue your ascent—ask yourself this: do you actually know what that means?

The word is thrown around a lot. A popular YouTube prank is deemed “legendary,” while your old college friend declares herself a “legend” for that unspeakable thing she did at graduation back in the day. Surely this is not what we are referring to.

No, a legend is someone—like our cover model Albert Watson—who achieves something much greater than these one-time feats. Someone who stands the test of time and, in their own way, changes the course of history. A legend both awes us with their supra-human abilities, while inspiring us with their all-too-human back stories. Without legends, we’d all be running in circles, chasing our own tails.  

But don’t take it from us. Take it from the legends we rounded up for questioning, ranging from the established (Mr. Watson), to the precocious (Mamadi Doumbouya), to those just on its cusp. By the time you’re done reading, expect to have twenty more Instagram accounts to follow, ten more photographers you’re dying to become friends with, and enough inspiration to last the rest of 2018. At least.

FEATURE: Mamadi: A Young Visionary on the Rise

We sat down with this impressive young man who, at the ripe age of 20, has already been personally requested by Spike Lee to shoot his NYTimes Magazine cover. Spoiler: he’s funny, endearingly modest, and wise beyond his years. Did we mention he’s 20?

 

FOCUS: 11 Legends to Be: A Predictive List of Today’s Future Legends

Resource whips out the crystal ball to predict the legends of tomorrow. Read it if you want to be in the know because, like much else, we’re probably right about this.

 

INSPIRE: Nicolas Bruno, Andrew Truong, Liam Wong, Dave and Gabe

Don’t know what creative pursuit to go after next? Here are four artists doing the unthinkable, whose work inspires us to do the same.

 

TRAVEL: The Legendary Woman on a Mission to Save the Asian Elephant

Travel editor Michael Bonocore travels to Thailand to tell the story of Lek Chailert, the “Mother of Asian Elephants.” At times both heartbreaking and hopeful, her story reminds us that being a legend doesn’t always require notoriety. Sometimes it just means doing the right thing, and doing it well.  

 

CREATE: VR, 360 Cameras, FujiFilm X-E3, Travel Bags

Demoing the best gear for the best pursuits so you can buy with confidence.

 

RE:CAP: Netflix, Ads, Books, Stocks, Social Media

Detailing all you need to know as a creative, so you can stay informed while living under a rock. We also decide how we feel about tide pods and that “finstagram” trend.
