Yes! I am actually very curious as to who this is, their face actually looks somewhat familiar. Like are they an artist of some sort, or a musician? I have so many unanswered questions.

Too much is definitely the best description for this
Don't get me wrong, I am all for experimental, new and variety. But in this case it's like "from one extreme to another". From the usual, all styled and glammed up, beautiful people on covers, to the unstyled, unproportioned weirdo (I'm sorry, I really don't want to offend anyone but I just want to point out what I mean with "two extremes").
I actually think he looks kinda cute and funny - with the baldness and the dimples. But it feels more like a joke to me, than actually a cover that can be taken seriously.

This image is so intriguing. I really want to know more about the cover subject. His expression and his pose is something that you may see in a classic beauty shot but his appearance is contradictory to that.

It really is a great cover.

I was just told that the cover is Leigh Bowery.

This looks like a buddha trying to be promiscuous. I like experimental and different, but I don't think this is a very extraordinary photograph. It's only garnering attention because it's not a skinny, doe-eyed model with razor-sharp cheekbones.

i like the cover.

but that's an old portrait of Leigh Bowery (RIP) - at the time he posed for Lucian Freud (1994), I believe. * not sure, though.
how did they get the rights etc. ?

come on people,it's the legendary leigh bowery in a quieter presence,if you will. i think that particular image is not only reflective of acne's powerful yet cerebral style but it's also a lovely tribute to somebody who pushed so many boundaries with costume,performance art,politics....you name it,he grasped it and he made people face it.

berlin,i wonder that myself. it's kind of similar to they transforming tilda into man ray's infamous model maria casati last issue....i wonder had they had to ask permission from ray's estate even to do that? still i am in love with what they're doing.
