“Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments.” – Rose Kennedy

Thank you for opening Issue 25 (cue fireworks), a milestone issue that we’re extremely proud of. Rose Kennedy is right of course, it’s much less about the number and more about the moments that have got us here, of which there have been many memorable ones. We are extremely lucky. In this issue, we’ve previewed AW17, taken on the cinematic behemoth that is Dunkirk, interviewed our favourite influencer and put together a camera guide, so you can capture the final (hopefully sunbleached) days of summer. We’ve even managed to interview the baddest MF’ around. On behalf of all the team here at The Essential Journal, thank you to everyone that has been involved with these pages over the years, we couldn’t have done it without you.
