Published biannually, 8 Magazine looks beneath the surface and shines a spotlight on the issues that shape our world. Now in its tenth year of publication, 8 magazine takes the traditional format of words and pictures to a new level. For each issue, we choose a theme to explore, usually a contemporary issue that requires investigating and understanding, and seek the best ways to bring the subject to light. With its unique mix of reportage, commentary, interviews and essays, 8 magazine has grown to occupy a unique place in the publishing sphere, offering world class analysis through essays, photographic and written.
A little over a year ago, blow magazine was no more than a loose idea waiting to take shape. Over the past twelve months we have cultivated a visual collection to honour the printed image, to celebrate known photographers and to shed a light on fresh talent. So it is with celebration in mind that we present to you our third issue: The Body Issue. One of the most photographed of subjects, the human body is infinite in its ability to communicate visually. Regularly a study of shape and form, sometimes a tool for social commentary and often a subject of controversy, the body acts as a human landscape with endless possibilities for expression and interpretation.
