Auckland-based journal anyonegirl is among our most recent editorial finds. Created by writer and trained contemporary dancer Yasmine Ganley, issue one – fittingly titled WAIST – considers the ideas surrounding the female mid-section, both inside and out, exploring sex, movement, digestion and a woman’s gut instinct. WAIST is anyonegirl’s first print project.
INTUITION ability to understand something instinctively without the need for conscious reasoning
An innate, typically fixed, pattern of behaviour in animals in response to certain stimuli INSTNCT
IMPULSE a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act
WAIST includes written and visual commissioned works by Nastassia Brückin, Kayten Schmidt, Gina Esposito, Caroline Denervaud, Francesca Hopkins and many more. You’ll also find a beautiful selection of photo essays such as the Art of Undressing on pages 28 to 35. The collaboration between Nastassia Brückin and Kayten Schmidt explores the female body, composition and a return to the nude or partially nude figure in a compellingly metaphoric, visual as well as conceptual way. Printed in Auckland, New Zealand.
