Frank Ocean for Oyster Magazine #103


A couple days ago Oyster Magazine revealed the double covers of their most recent issue featuring Frank, and now, we give you the rest. Oyster #103 features photoshoots of Frank Ocean and Iggy Azalea by director and photographer Nabil Elderkin, and corresponding interviews with each artist. Here’s a sneak peek.

…You know, I didn’t ever have a disciplinarian in my creative life. As a young person I didn’t have — for lack of a better word — I didn’t have a Joe Jackson in my family. I didn’t have that sort of overbearing stage-parent… Or, even, I didn’t even have a parent who encouraged what I did in that way. And — don’t bring out the string section. It’s not really sad — what it did foster is… Well, my attitude was pure. I love to make music, and I love to write. It was writing first. I love to write and express myself in that medium, so that was the pure part — just the love of doing something, but there was also this fantasy of what the lifestyle would be and what the trappings of success would be. There are different little montage clips that you make up in your mind, like what a day in the life would be like once you’re a fully grown whatever-you’re-going-to-become, you know? – Frank Ocean

Inside the issue you’ll also find interviews with Marina Abramovic, Rick Owens, Chance The Rapper, Jagwar Ma, Say Lou Lou, Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Junglepussy, Craig Green and more.
