Freaks, Geeks and Outsiders: Dazed & Confused January 2013 Issue

Dazed & Confused's 'Against the Grain' January 2013 issue is dedicated to their favourite 'freaks, geeks and outsiders' (in their own words) - a bunch of eclectic and creative rebels who have impacted popular culture in their own unique way. 
Among the cast of freaks, geeks and outsiders are German filmmaker and visionary Werner Herzog, Beyo's baby Sis Solange and Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini - perhaps the most eye-opening of all though is Damien Echols, one of the West Memphis Three who after 18 years on death row was released in 2011, and later penned a book entitled "Life After Death", a collection of his prison journals, memories and post-jail writing. Echols is now planning to release a Hollywood film based on his fight for justice.

January's cover star is American rapper Riff Raff who has been hailed as 'hip hop's great white hope', photographed by Nick Haymes - and if you haven't yet seen 'The 12 Dazed of Riff-Mas', a video in which the rapper tells us about his yuletide of swagger, then watch it below. You can also see a new video every day in the Riff-Mas countdown by subscribing to Dazed's YouTube channel HERE

The January 2013 'Against the Grain' issue is out now.
