Rihanna for Garage Magazine The Human Future -Issue 15 by Deana Lawson
New album, new makeup dropping and more fashion editorials. Rih is certainly giving the masses what they want! Garage Magazine released a statement regarding their Badgalriri and Lawson collab. The mag states,
“Behold! Rihanna stars on the cover GARAGE issue 15, The Human Future, photographed by artist Deana Lawson. Rihanna is a queen, but under Deana Lawson’s gaze even mere mortals take on an indisputable regality.
In conversation with fellow artist, Arthur Jafa, Deana Lawson reflects on how she came to photography and the process of taking pictures beyond the surface. Meet the celebrated artist behind this photograph [and read] the full story on garage.vice.com.”
So what are the kind of things Deana and Arthur gab about? For one, Lawson’s drive to create on her on terms. In conversation with Arthur Jafe, Deana says,
“Someone said that I’m ruthless when it comes to what I want. Maybe that’s part of it: I have an image in mind that I have to make. It burns so deeply that I have to make it; and I don’t care what people are going to think.”

So how does she do it? How is Lawson able to make her artistic vision stand out from the rest of the pack? In Garage’s issue 15 featuring Rihanna, Deana gets real on her ethic and eye for great photography. She reveals,
“When I’m going out to make work, usually I’m choosing people that come from a lower or working-class situation. My choice feels natural because it’s a rejection of the people and forces I grew up around in Rochester… It’s about value. It’s about using a figure or a body to represent something higher than we would normally associate it with.
“I believe… I was destined to be an artist with a camera. It all adds up: my grandmother who worked for George Eastman, my mother who was a secretary at Kodak; my aunt who helps people ‘see,’ [and] my father who was the family photographer. How could it not be destiny?”
Fashion Notes: For her cover Rihanna wears a slew of designer attire. Her black briefs are Dolce & Gabbana, jewelry is from Tiffany & Co., pink vintage top is One of a Kind Fashion Archive; with shoes by Y Project.
