contributors 16 ultratravel Janelle Zara is a freelance art, design and architecture writer whose work has appeared in T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Artforum and The Architect's Newspaper. Since a recent move from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, she has also come to specialize in parallel parking. "After interviewing Nadja Swarovski for this issue," she says, "I realized my life could probably use more bling." In this issue, Henley Vazquez explores the French countryside. "This part of Provence was new for me, and I loved seeing the contrast between the plains of the Camargue and the green hills of Provence Verte," she says. "The scenery and the food was spectacular everywhere." Vazquez, who also contributes to National Geographic Traveler, lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Melissa Feldman writes and produces features and online stories with a focus on interiors, architecture, food and design. In this issue, the globetrotting New Yorker shines a spotlight on Chicago, highlighting the debut of the Chicago Architecture Biennial with design- inspired destinations. She contributes to a variety of publications and brands including Departures, Architectural Digest, W, Glamour, Azure, New York Post and ESP Trendlab. Since 2012, Feldman has been editing and writing a book series for the International Interior Design Association titled "What Clients Want." In this issue, contributing writer India Hicks spent two days in Paris exploring the new La Réserve Paris Hotel and Spa "with my very cross mother," she says. A designer, author and entrepreneur, Hicks currently lives in the Bahamas with her partner, David Flint Wood (with whom she's restored four houses and a hotel), and their five children: Felix, Amory, Conrad, Domino and Wesley. A successful designer in her own right, Hicks is also the founder of her namesake lifestyle brand, which focuses on partnering with entrepreneurial women who are able to sell her collections from their own home—and on their own terms. Ken Kochey currently resides in New York City with his wife and two children, but his job as a travel and lifestyle photographer has him constantly traveling around the globe. While he occasionally shoots fashion, he is primarily focused on his travel and lifestyle photography, and is known for capturing those real moments that are found while on the road. Kochey captured the enchanted Hayman Island for this issue's cover story, "The Escapist." PORTRAIT BY BEATRIZ DA COSTA (FELDMAN)
