The „Edgemag.“ is a publication that deals with the frontiers of contemporary photography in a critical, documentary and artistical way. It happens to be a platform for extraordinary projects which confronts us with facts that are usually concealed in our society.
This magazine curates unique people who see things differently and who are brave enough to show us their individual way of thinking. Through their eyes we get the opportunity to critically focus on hidden issues. Therefore photography seems like the perfect medium to push boundaries into different directions.
Issue 1 provides us insight of a country which is separated from the rest of the world. Most western people barely know anything about circumstances in North Korean everyday life. „The land of whispers“ illuminates several perspectives who have dealt with interpendence of North Korean society. This takes us on an unexpected journey to gain knowledge from unkonwn terrain.
There are four printed releases of „Edgemag.“ every year that you can order online. Visit www.edgemag.com where you can also get a handpicked selection of additional information to each available issue.

And now sit back and enjoy!
