Tony Phillips is a freelance journalist who lives between Manhattan and Fort Lauderdale. After completing a prestigious Goldring Fellowship at Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2009, he returned to the city to publish his controversial “Jersey Shore” feature on the cover of The Village Voice. He recently wrote several features for OutMagazine including a profile of French art house crossover Francois Sagat shot by photographer Terry Richardson and currently writes for Random House’s Word & Film focusing on films that have been adapted from novels. Tony is currently finishing his second book and working on a feature about the launch of Barbie’s 10,000 square-foot Dreamhouse for a new national publication. He is pictured here in Barbie’s stately Dream Kitchen at The Dreamhouse Experience in Fort Lauderdale.

Launch Party for Pinups NO17

After a year-long hiatus, Pinups is back with a new issue that disrupts the book’s inherent narrative. As always, the magazine can be unbound and re-assembled to form a large poster from pages of abstract halftone but as a book, this issue is more complex than its predecessors. In contrast to the halftone pages, which are only fragments of the poster, other pages contain parts of numerous images scattered randomly across the pagination. As single pages share bits and pieces of multiple images, the connections can only be imagined until the poster is assembled and the full images revealed on the poster’s flipside. Pinups No17 features performance artist Jake Dibeler clad with performance props.
