Morena, founded by Barcelona-based art and design studio Córdova-Canillas in co-operation with creative director Jan Rivera, is a collection of monographs venturing in nudity whose former contributors include Mario Sorrenti, Richard Kern and Olivier Zahm. The new issue consists of a portfolio of photographs Hanna Moon took of her best friend Moffy in Japan in October 2017, exploring the love and intimacy between them.
From the essay Moffy wrote for the publication: ‘A Korean and English girl - bought together in an intimacy which defies the distance they have travelled to find each other - on the 36th floor of a strange hotel, while somewhere across Tokyo a crab still moves in a bowl of ice; and a taste is recalled to the viewer of a piece of fruit they ate one summer, from the colour of a cherry red stocking draped over a chair in the background.’
Hanna and Moffy will be in Barcelona this Friday for the issue launch party and a Q&A.
