New York-based photographer Robert Adam Mayer is a distinguished and sensitive portraitist—as amply demonstrated anew in his cover and interior images of black-studies scholar Fred Moten, for the January-February issue.

Phil Foster conceived vivid, compelling illustrations to drive home the importance of the arguments made by business and law professor Mihir A. Desai about the new federal tax law, in the May-June issue.

Our warmest thanks to these superb professionals.
