Chinese lifestyle mag features Kwaku Alston’s “Volkslivin” project

The Outlook is a Chinese magazine that strives to become “synonymous to a lifestyle guide for The Creative Elite, and the new generation of creative and artistic talent of China. We believe that lifestyle and the view of aesthetics is the reflection of small personal details.” So it makes sense that the editors would find an affinity with Kwaku Alston‘s “Volkslivin,” an ongoing photo series that documents vintage Volkswagen buses wherever Kwaku finds them, many of them customized by their loyal owners. The April issue of The Outlook features a big pullout poster of images from “Volkslivin,” which celebrates aesthetics, personal details, and a specific lifestyle, modest though it may be. It’s fun to think about someone in China putting it up on their wall and being transported.
