INFRINGE 2 Has Just Launched!
Last year Anthony and Pat Mascolo launched their creative project, INFRINGE, ANTHROPOLOGY OF HAIR. Originally starting as an online project www.INFRINGE.com, the first print issue, in the form of a ‘coffee table’ edition launched in June 2017.
INFRINGE is a unique publication for anyone with a pas-sion for hair, but takes a very differ-ent viewpoint, exploring hair across all creative disciplines – both as an art form as well as its effects on culture, photography and fashion.
What. When. Where
Launching on the 26th April 2018, the second issue of INFRINGE is available to buy both online (at www.INFRINGE.com) and from selected outlets worldwide. Issue #2 presents interviews, editorials, artworks and photo-essays, explor-ing hair across all creative disci-plines with some truly incredible contributors on board. You’ll find conversations with hair creatives including industry legend Trevor Sorbie and New York hair artist Bob Recine, as well as many of today’s rising stars in the industry, including salon owners, colourists, barbers and session workers. Exploring the cultural impact of hair, INFRINGE spoke to designer Sanne Visser, who creates cutting edge products out of discarded hair, and met an-thropologist Emma Tarlo, whose lat-est book delves into the fascinating, mostly hidden world of the human hair trade. For this issue INFRINGE travelled extensively to capture stories, the highlight being a visit to Tokyo, by the entire team, where they observed and documented some fascinating hair rituals.
A Word From The Founders
“When we launched our first printed issue of INFRINGE in 2017, we were so excited to share our ongoing exploration of the vast world of hair culture and creativity. Issue 1 was absolutely packed full of stories fo-cusing on the fringes of our indus-try, and dug into the lesser-seen elements of the hair world. At the back of our minds we had a niggling worry… would we run out of hair stories to tell? Far from it – we’ve been completely overwhelmed with the wonderful response to the first issue, and the many, many people who have got in touch from all over the world since its release, to share their own hair stories. If anything, it’s made us realise when it comes to the world of hair, we’ve barely even scratched the surface. It was with this in mind that we set off to start Issue #2.” Anthony & Pat Mascolo Founders & Editors-in-chief.
