Patron Saints, Video for NOWNESS



On the Sixth Day of Christmas
We Salute Six Midas Men with the Golden Touch


The industry titans celebrated in an animation by Christian Borstlap on NOWNESS are some of modern society's most significant trailblazers: Ted Turner, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, George Soros, Eli Broad and Warren Buffet have made priceless contributions to the world we live in through philanthropy, innovation and communication. Social commentator and photographer Patrick McMullan helped select these patron saints for our homage; his 30-year-career, which spans his start at Studio 54 to his current post as a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, afforded him an unrivaled perspective from which to draw.
