Hasselblad Press Release

First issue of print format VICTOR now available

Following the news that VICTOR magazine is to revert to print format following a period as an online only publication, the first issue is now available, sumptuously hard cloth bound and containing over 200 pages.

Issue one of the new look VICTOR includes contributions from a wide range of top photographers. Amongst those featured are Anton Corbijn, known for his iconic portraits of top musicians such as U2, Depeche Mode and Nirvana and for directing the films ‘Control’ and ‘The American,’ Marco Grob, who focused on the long aftermath of 9/11, Mark Zibert who has photographed award winning campaigns for both Nike and Adidas, Edward Burtynsky, one of the world’s most distinguished photographers and Rodney Smith, whose striking fashion images have graced both Vanity Fair and the New York Times for decades.

“I am delighted that VICTOR is now back in print format, as this is the ultimate format to enjoy images,” says Chris Russell-Fish, Hasselblad’s Global Marketing Director. “We hope the long time fans of VICTOR magazine will enjoy this new publication and that it will also attract many new fans and lovers of photography.”

The print edition of VICTOR - Photography Book One is being jointly published by Hasselblad and experienced publishing house ‘By Any Means Necessary,’ and the title’s editor-in-chief Stephen Toner is convinced it will carry huge appeal to anyone who appreciates the opportunity to enjoy great photography, beautifully laid out and exquisitely reproduced. “This is an exciting time for photography, calling for innovation, dynamism and an embrace of the future,” he says. “But it also requires a respect for heritage and for the expertise that comes from a long history of working at the very highest level, to the most exacting standards. Hasselblad, and all of the photographers included in this first issue, embody this approach perfectly and this book is a testament to their craft.”

The magazine, which includes copy translations into several different languages in the back to ensure maximum accessibility, will be published twice a year. It’s available from September 24 from exclusive magazine shops in London, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Madrid, New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong, priced at £15, €20 and $25 respectively, while photographers anywhere in the world can obtain the magazine from http://www.newsstand.co.uk at the cover price plus shipping costs.

Looking forward to the inspiration! Looks like a beautiful coffee table book, despite its "magazine" status.
