LAUNCH OF ELSKA MAGAZINE: LOCAL BOYS + LOCAL STORIES

Press Release: August 10, 2015

01 SEPTEMBER, 2015 SEES THE LAUNCH OF ‘ELSKA MAGAZINE’, THE BI-MONTHLY PUBLICATION DEDICATED TO PHOTOGRAPHS OF REAL MEN WITH FLAWS UNEDITED, ALONG WITH THEIR STORIES, DELIVERING AN INTIMATE, CULTURAL AND EYE-AND-MIND-OPENING EXPERIENCE.

WITH EACH ISSUE SHOT IN A DIFFERENT CITY WITH LOCAL BOYS, YOU GET A FEEL FOR WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE THERE WITH THEM, OUT AND ABOUT IN TOWN OR CUDDLED UP NEXT TO THEM ON A SOFA. AND THE MEN WRITE IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE (TRANSLATED BY US) OR IN UNEDITED BROKEN ENGLISH, BRINGING A TRULY UNIQUE APPROACH THAT IS WARM AND CANDID.

ELSKA IS A BIT LIKE A QUASI-INTELLECTUAL MALE PIN-UP MAG; OR A SORT OF SEXY ANTHROPOLOGY JOURNAL; OR A KIND OF INTERNATIONAL STREET STYLE ZINE. IT IS PROVACATIVE, AUTHENTIC, IMPERFECT (‘COS PERFECT IS BORING), AND MADE WITH LOVE.

AT 132 PAGES ON STROKEABLY BEAUTIFUL MATTE PAPER, EACH EDITION IS LIKE A COLLECTIBLE ART BOOK, PERFECT ON ANY SHELF OR COFFEE TABLE. THERE’S ALSO AN E-VERSION AND THE ACCOMPANYING “ELSKA EKSTRA”, A LITTLE BUDGET E-ZINE WITH OUTTAKES AND EXTRA PICS OF OUR FAVOURITE ELSKA BOYS. AVAILABLE AT ELSKAMAGAZINE.COM, IN SHOPS ACROSS LONDON, AND IN SELECT METROPOLISES WORLDWIDE.

EDITOR LIAM CAMPBELL SAYS: “I STARTED ELSKA TO SPOTLIGHT NOT ALWAYS PRETTY BUT ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL MEN, SHOT WITH HONESTY, SO THAT THEIR ALLURE ISN’T IN PERFECT BODIES, PERFECT SKIN, AND PERFECT SMILES, BUT THROUGH THEIR VULNERABILITY, HUMOUR, AND PERSONALITY. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE REAL, NOT JUST IMAGES ON A PAGE”.

THE FIRST ISSUE WAS SHOT IN LVIV, UKRAINE.
RETAIL PRICE: £12 GBP / $18.50 (USD) / €17 (EUR)
