CREEM 

 

For U.S fashion magazine CREEM I reported on how the ‘hipper than thou’ hipster culture evolved and more so, why it is often unjustly vilified.

 

N.B: Shortly after approval of this piece, the editorial staff decided to change the entire theme for that particular edition, which meant it never reached publication. It was one of my very first long reads, so I couldn't help but dump it here.
