James&Duke

Introduction text by Urchin.
Did you ever wish you were in a band? Did you ever want to live the rock and roll lifestyle? Did you ever want endless amounts of effortless cool? Be constantly surrounded by lovely ladies, be able to wail on the mic, skate like a demon, rock jeans tighter than your girlfriend and take hard hitting photos of all of the above?

Benn Wood is one switched on, understated guy that resonates effortless cool. And he can take a photo that does all the talking. You won’t find Benn rolling through blogs and tumblers looking for inspiration, this guy will be deep in the Melbourne dirt laughing his arse off doing great things to make this world just a little more beautiful and keeping us all real.


On the first drop of his new series ‘Ten in Ten’, Benn meets up with James and Duke to talk about cashing up and hanging out.

ISSUE SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
