With Newsweek leaving the institution of print, we’ve marked a new era in communication. So all of a sudden, my inherited collection of every printed Newsweek issue since the 50’s goes from its original value, up once cent… maybe. As much as we hold onto the idea of traditional print, or as sexy we might think it is due to its growing rarity, we just don’t communicate that way anymore. Like innovation in technology, the creative practice ebbs and flows with new ideas affected by the current state of the world. So if society has changed, or rather is changing, why should those who document and hold history archived, not? Instead of focusing on the status quo, we’d like to celebrate those who are shaping the future of publishing. We are committed to our tablet and mobile platform, so let our ongoing investigation begin.

British Journal of Photography
$9.99 per issue
A truly visionary curation of international works in photo and video formats, the British Journal of Photography inspired Installation to utilize the same Mag+ platform to publish our magazine. The application of interaction is kept at a minimum with video or slideshow elements inspired from the featured work. Like the rest of the major publishing world transitioning their reader-base from print to digital, they’ve had an interesting time resetting their readers expectations (i.e. the two and half star rating the application has on the App Store.) However, the content is just as original and the product is well worth the slightly high price, if photography is your passion.
