When the Rig Out chaps asked if we wanted to be involved in their next issue (and accompanying film) they didn’t need to ask twice.
For their last instalment, the Rig Out team transported themselves and their intrepid swagger to a massive glacier in Norway. This time out, the wanderlust of stylist Glenn Kitson and photographer Antony Crook had grown even stronger.
The centrepiece of Rig Out IV is a photoshoot which took place in the North African wildnerness - Morocco to be precise. Heading to such an exotic location in the middle of a dismal British winter would normally sound like nice work if you can get it. But civil unrest across the region meant they had to be on their guard. Indeed, their model for the trip - himself no stranger to unarmed combat - was the target of some local dissaffected youths. The only fire exchanged came in the form of a few errant stones and numerous cutting remarks, which were returned with interest.
Taking a backseat during the proceedings to document the trip was Antony Crook who captured some wonderful images and directed yet another stunning video.
With Clarks Originals, Stone Island, Woolrich Woolen Mills, Folk, R6 and LVC all making an uncommon appearance in the North African desert, it's an engaging watch.
Launched exclusively by the New York Times The Stream features Clarks Originals exclusively throughout.
