Musée Magazine is a visually-driven photography magazine dedicated to displaying the work of international emerging photographers. It will also incorporate interviews with different guest photographers, artists, writers, collectors and gallerists.
Musée Magazine seeks to provide a venue for new photographers, with the necessary exposure to launch their professional careers.
The editor, Andrea Blanch, a famous fashion photographer from the eighties and the nineties wrote in the editor letter:
“My entry in to the world of fashion photography was rarified and magical. And much of it started out of mere coincidence through house sitting for a friend at the right place and the right time. Although I was a painter, I had never picked up a camera before, and never had any aspirations to do so. But it just so happened this house I was in was being used by Richard Avedon for a photo shoot. As I watched him work I knew instantly that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. From there I began as Avedons unpaid trainee, he then became my mentor after which; American Vogue became my first client.
While working at the studio one afternoon, a flash of inspiration came to mind to create a photographic magazine that provides exposure to emerging photographers from all over the world, who wouldnt necessarily have a platform to display their work, that is when Musée Magazine began. Every Musée issue will include interviews and profiles with guest photographers, artist, writers, collectors and gallerists. Guess curators will lend their expertise to selecting the photographs. There will be works of fiction inspired by the photographs in the issue, also created by emerging writers. Unlike our inaugural issue, in which the artists could submit work on any subject matter, our subsequent issues will be theme inspired. It is incredibly important for Musée to have broad appeal and community support.”
