An award winning creative director, art director and photo editor, Stephen Male began his career with the fledgling i-D magazine while studying at Saint Martin's School of Art in London. He continued with i-D after graduating, becoming its first art director. He has a wide range of experience in editorial, books, fashion, branding, advertising, the music industry and interior design. He relocated from Paris to New York when asked to become art director of American Vogue, and lives in the Western Catskills, NY
"Without the expertise of art directors of the calibre of Robin Derrick (British Vogue), Phil Bicker (The Face), Stephen Male (i-D, US Vogue), David James (Prada) and of course Fabien Baron (too many to mention), many photographers may have gone unnoticed."
