Visionaire has teamed up with Californian conceptual artist John Baldessari to create an issue that explores self-portraiture (aka selfies) in the digital age. A red-hot roster of personalities including Miley Cyrus, Karlie Kloss, Lionel Messi, John Waters, Kirsten Dunst, Lupita Nyong'o, Gisele (…the list goes on…) were asked to take black and white self-portraits, which then underwent "colour interventions" from 83-year-old Baldessari. Bright dots and embossed shapes take over celeb faces. The issue, in partnership with Samsung, is divided into three limited editions (Red, Green, and Blue) retailed separately at $325 and each containing 10 loose portraits within a case that converts into a display.
