Visionaire 61 LARGER THAN LIFE is here! Visionaire has unveiled the cover to the issue, which broke the Guinness World Record for largest magazine issue—TWICE. This issue of Visionaire initially broke the World Record at 36 x 49.48 inches in size. In an effort to break our own record, we created a Deluxe Edition at 57.48 x 79 inches as well—almost 5 X 7 feet!

In this history-making issue, Visionaire gives iconic artists and image-makers the forum to take their visions to a massive scale. No contemporary figure symbolizes LARGER THAN LIFE more than the global pop phenom Lady Gaga, who graces the front and back covers in two stunning portraits by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Other contributors to the issue include photographers Steven Klein, Steven Meisel, Mario Sorrenti, and Bruce Weber; artists Doug Aitken, Maurizio Cattelan & Pierpaolo Ferrari, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Ryan McGinley, Marilyn Minter, Rob Pruitt, Ed Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Sam Taylor-Wood, Josephine Meckseper & Richard Phillips, Marina Abramovic & Martin Schoeller, Guido Mocafico, and Massimo Vitali; fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld, and filmmaker Ridley Scott. Each one takes on LARGER THAN LIFE in their own signature style.

This issue was made possible with the support of Nizan Guanaes, founder of the Brazil-based premium global brand Africa Agency, a subsidiary of Grupo ABC, one of the world’s largest communications groups.
