Frank Ocean Covers 'i-D', Publishes 32-Page Photo Essay and Letter
“If you liked two thousand and seventeen then you’ll love two thousand and eighteen.”
The 32-page spread chronicles the artist’s summer 2017 tour through his own lens, spotlighting the cast of creatives behind the elaborate production, including Vegyn (co-host of his randomly-transmitted blondedRADIO broadcasts,) Buddy Ross (Ocean’s longtime keyboard player) Spike Jonze (man behind VICELAND and the tour’s live and on the spot music video feel,) along with other members of the band and crew. The summer tour saw two stateside performances in LA and NYC, mostly keeping overseas, but was unanimously praised for the spiritual, analog-digital audiovisual bomb experience it cultivated. One fan was so moved by the FYF Festival performance, they cut a full concert film out of crowd-shot footage.
The image above is taken from the essay, available in full along with a note from the artist via i-D below. Hold tight for his next transmission.
