Devin Yalkin (b. 1981), born and raised in New York City, is a black & white reportage photographer who received his BFA in Photography at the School of Visual Arts, NY. As a first generation Turkish-Armenian-American, Yalkin’s images display the parallels he has captured shooting between New York City and various cities of his heritage in Turkey, primarily in Istanbul.

Yalkin’s photographs have been included in shows and art fairs internationally, including: The LUMIX Photo Festival in Hanover, Germany; METROPOLIS: Noorderlicht Photo Festival in Groningen, Netherlands; and Independent Works, at Edisyon Gallery in Istanbul, Turkey. His works were included in the Istanbul Moma’s exhibition Close Quarters in May of 2013. As a result of the show, two works are now included in the permanent collection of the museum. Additionally, in September 2013, Yalkin was given a solo exhibition at the Stieglitz 19 gallery in Antwerp, Belgium, which featured his series Acoustic Movements.

Devin’s clients include Time Magazine, Stern Magazine, New York Magazine, New York Times, Vice, Esquire Russia, Playboy Italia, Gq Italia, Geo Kompakt and Men’s Journal. His underground boxing series was published in The New York Times in April 2012 as well as TIME Magazine’s LightBox in 2011. Devin’s works were invited to be included in MONO by Gomma Books (released November 2012), which specifically showcases contemporary black and white photography from both renowned and emerging artists today.

Devin Yalkin, currently works and resides in Brooklyn, New York.

The Arlee Warriors are a high-school basketball team from Montana's Flathead Indian Reservation. In our cover story by @abestreep, the Warriors play through a season that is as much about overcoming adversity (if not more) as it is about basketball. The starting five don't actually play in the snow, of course, but our editor in chief, Jake Silverstein, says that "seeing them out there in the cold conveys some of the toughness these players possess." Over the course of the season, the team became outspoken advocates for a community grappling with suicide. "I don't know if Steph Curry has felt the kind of pressure these kids played under," the story's writer, Abe Streep, says. "A young suicide-attempt survivor from elsewhere in Montana talked to me about how cool the boys' efforts were. That was the word she used to describe suicide prevention — 'cool.'
