A photo of David Lynch by Nadav Kander was recently published on the cover of UK magazine The Big Issue.

They posted it to Alamy, and The Big Issue bought it from there, cropped it and used it for the cover.

After Sports Illustrated and Billboard, Elle Australia also issued a cover shot with a smartphone. The photographer Georges Antoni opted for iPhone 7 Plus, like Miller Mobley who shot for Billboard Magazine. And once again, with fine golden light and skillful photographer and model – the results ended up to be fantastic.
