The larger-than-life energy that Lil Buck brings to any space—an outdoor masterclass in Vail, CO; onstage at the Koch Theater at Lincoln Center; and in front of the camera at a photo studio in downtown Manhattan—is totally infectious. At just 25 years old, he's still at the beginning of what we predict will be a long and fruitful career (we named him a "25 to watch" just last year), but we felt compelled to delve deeper into his story—into his ever-growing artistry and sense of style. Read his cover profile, "Mesmerizing Moves," by Marina Harss, here.

 

And as a bonus, here are some onset photos by Jayme Thorton, and a video from the cover shoot, (Damian Woetzel, Lil Buck's mentor, makes a cameo in both):
