Magazines are a collective effort, a group of words and pictures conceived by a team of creatives whose goal is journalistic excellence. For this autumn edition, Issue 94, Elia Essen profiles contemporary artist Elizabeth Zvonar. Daniel Terna photographed Sebastian ErraZuriz at his apartment in New York for “Sebastian ErraZuriz’ Expression of Ideas”.
