This is a very organised and elegant design. The elegance comes from the three columns of text sitting above the main part of the image, meaning the readers eyes flow quite nicely over the page.
What I also like about this spread is that the caption for the four images at the top of the page is inside of them. In addition to this the pull quote in this design is used as the main caption, explaining and giving the image meaning for the audience.
There isn’t an over bearing headline on this page, suggesting it was on a separate page by itself. That means that on this page there is more room to play with experimental layouts. There is also no deck or introduction, adding to more space for an experimental spread. Because the one image is the background for this spread it makes this particular spread feel like a unit, not disjointed meaning while it looks nice on the eye, it is also easy to follow.
