Concept and design of a monothematic photography magazine.
The amateur is a large-format magazine for contemporary photography. Each issue is curated around a specific theme to which the works of established artists and newcomers relate visually or in terms of content. The photo series are complemented by artistic or editorial texts on the topic. The print magazine can also be experienced digitally through its augmented reality app. Making-of videos, interactive graphics as well as artistic digital interpretations and media art lead even deeper into the issue topic.
The theme of the beta issue #0.5 is the “earth overshoot day 2019” and its related drama of human resource consumption.
