In Mastermind 11, the remarkable Penélope Cruz invites us to Madrid for a wide-ranging conversation about her life and work, bringing the same fiery honesty to the page as she does to the screen.
Also inside, actress Ruth Negga discusses her nomadic nature and mesmerizing performances, astronaut Thomas Pesquet speaks candidly about the fears he experiences at work in outer space, and artist Ai Weiwei reflects on how his pursuit of free expression has made him an enemy of the state.
Plus photography by Craig McDean, Ethan James Green, Carlijn Jacobs, Tod Papageorge, Thue Norgaard, Julien Martinez Leclerc and more.
