Perspectives YYC: Magazine
It all started when…
There is something about print. Something tangible. Something real. Something still temporary and eroding. In art, photography, writing... there's an important part to play in transforming what has largely become electronic and visual consumption of art into an object. In this vein, we decided to build a print magazine with content from local artists, artisans, and human beings. Work that would ONLY be available in print. Where the magazine itself will end up, what direction it might/ought/could have gone - we'll only know as it develops. One thing is certain though: The principle for Perspectives YYC is to bring local art to everyday local people. Look for it at local retailers (we'll have a list if we can) and help support our initiative to connect all these incredible YYC folks with each other! To each other! To the WORLD!
Issue One and Issue Two available now. Issue Three launching early 2019.
“Just finished the mag. It’s incredible. Thank you! Truthfully, I would never sit down and read a magazine front to back the way I just did, especially not in today’s age. I think the last time I got excited about a magazine I was about 14, and reading the latest issue of Mad Magazine. Reading your magazine brought me back to that same excitement and enthusiasm, and the fact that your creation is able to excite young people in a digital age really says something. Does that make sense? Anyways, congrats on another awesome issue!”
