The Cut #10 Takes a Cue from Breaking Bad

The Cut #10 issue features a brilliant Crystal Meth-inspired editorial shot by the versatile Thomas Albdorf. The shoot follows the explosive finale of Breaking Bad, the popular HBO series that has helped “meth” re-enter our everyday vernacular.

A set of anonymous, gloved hands carry out some chemistry experiments; however, instead of yielding the amphetamine, these experiments produce some shiny, crystal baubles. The creative presentation of these luminous accessories makes them even more intriguing to potential consumers—especially if they happen to be Breaking Bad fans.

Moreover, Albdorf proves that his abstract, personal style (he normally dabbles in conceptual photography) can translate into editorial work with the cleverly titled ‘Crystal Method’ editorial for The Cut Magazine’s tenth issue. Stats for Narcotics-Inspired Editorials Trending: This Year & Average
