Paper Mag // Conan Gray Profile

When Paper comes to town, it’s not without fanfare.

Ryan Duff and the Paper Mag team came by recently to shoot portraits of "Gen Z vlogging sensation and venue-packing pop powerhouse" Conan Grey.

The article brings to life this talented pop sensation. But where it really shines (in our not-so-humble opinion), is in showing off the magnetic portrait photography of Ryan Duff.


Standing, sitting, smiling, b&w and more — these shots are as fresh and charming as the man himself.

The article explores Gray’s process, inspiration, and artistic ethos, and does so with its own artistic contribution to his image.

As Gray says in the piece: "Writing, for me, was my only real way of speaking what I was thinking, and all of the emotions that I had, into existence."


We’re glad they brought this into existence, too!
