The 16th issue of Port is our biggest yet and marks our transformation into a fully fledged biannual magazine. We've opted for a larger, weightier format, moved to a thicker and higher quality paper stock and expanded to 242 pages.
Our newest cover features Josh Brolin of Inherent Vice and No Country for Old Men, shot by Andreas Laszlo Konrath. He chats to Los Angeles film writer John Horn about working with the Coen brothers, mountain climbing, and mastering the art of bakery.
In the Feature section: Alyn Griffiths travels to New York, Washington D.C. and Sydney for in-depth look at the skyscraper industry, while Ray Murphy chats with body architect Lucy McRae about blurring the lines between art and science.
