Refelctions - 10Men / Models.com
“I grew up in London and in the early Nineties became obsessed with all the great fashion magazines. I loved all the monthly mags and dreamed of shooting for them yet I never felt that I was represented by them,” Hamza explains. “Although it does seem like things are progressing in terms of representation, it is still slow and often feels like the ticking of a diversity box.”The feature, with an accompanying video below, is an extremely personal project for Hamza, who is quick to acknowledge the support from an independent magazine like 10 Men to achieve his vision. “The editorial is titled Self Portrait because it’s a reflection of who I am and it’s my way of reflecting the faces that look like mine and my sister’s,” he says. “Tara and I casted people of various mixed ethnic backgrounds. They have a mix or Middle Eastern or Asian heritage but, like me, their British upbringing has played a huge part in shaping their culture.”

Sundance - What does it mean to become somebody else's story?
At the Sundance Film Festival, some of the brightest stars attending came to the house I was staying at and told me what it meant to them to tell somebody else's story. This wasn't scripted and the question wasn't approved in advance, they were asked suddenly at the end of a photo session in order to get a glimpse of voices we are used to hearing after several rehearsals in a more raw form.
In order of appearance:
TIMOTHEE CHALAMET, JESSICA WILLIAMS, ZOEY DEUTCH, TREVOR JACKSON, LILY COLLINS, DREE HEMINGWAY, JAIME KING, HALEY LU RICHARDSON, DANIELLE MACDONALD, RILEY KEOUGH, GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE, ANNABELLE DEXTER JONES, REBECCA DAYAN, MARGARET QUALLEY, ANYA TAYLOR JOY, AUBREY PLAZA, DEVIN BLACKMON, EMILY BROWNING, HARRIS DICKINSON, ELIZABETH OLSEN, JORGE LENDEBORG JR., JENNY SLATE, ZOE LISTER-JONES
Teen Vogue - Troop 6000
During my early teens my parents got divorced and my mother, younger sister and I ended up living in sheltered accommodation. My mother made some tough decisions during a hard time and thanks to her everything worked out. When I heard about #Troop6000, it brought me back to that time. The girls remind me of my sister back then and their mothers are holding it together like mine did. #Troop6000 is a Girl Scout group for homeless girls in NY. These are strong women raising strong girls in tough times and it's easy to overlook and forget about them.
Beauty Papers جميل
This issue of Beauty Papers shows the extraordinary minds of our contributors taking risks, reveling in their obsessions and convictions to explore the very definition of beautiful. What is beautiful to you?
I find stories to be beautiful, and more so the opportunity for all to tell personal ones.
I wanted to capture the depth of the beauty in the faces and the stories of those with identities that combine yet transcend middle eastern and western backgrounds. The subjects of this shoot have middle eastern faces but the cultures, issues and feelings that they identify with go far beyond what they look like or where they were raised. A greater exploration of the term beauty is more than skin deep.
Growing up in London, obsessed with magazines, I had always longed to see faces like mine and my sister’s printed on pages. It’s wonderful to see that we are in changing times where everyone’s beauty is included.
This shoot was an opportunity for me to use my voice and my work to show others something that I find to be beautiful but often overlooked.
