About the Work

For our annual Culture Issue, the magazine commissioned Jack Davison to create portraits of Cate Blanchett that were inspired by her talent for transformation and shape-shifting. In his sketches and mood board, Davison drew upon references to the Bauhaus, and his wild creativity pushed the boundaries of portraiture. Blanchett generously embraced the concept and collaborated with Davison and the magazine to create photographs that are works of art in their own right.
