Creative Director, Claudia Bruno launches Bare magazine.
'Bare is a global fashion, culture and arts magazine dedicated to the unadorned moment of truth, an ode to the raw beauty of realism and simplicity.
Here you will find imagery, artistry, and storytelling with no creative brief, no client, no shimmer, no patina, no retouch – no rules.
Bare is free form and unmediated. Photographers direct their shoots. An architect considers his inspiration. Two filmmakers contemplate influences. A writer confesses. A designer delves into creative rituals. In these pages process is as fascinating as product. In Bare, our subjects tell their own stories. In this way our readers are free to draw their own conclusions. Bare is simple discovery without summary or synthesis.
Our first issue features unscripted explorations by some of our favorite photographers. Jem Mitchell goes into the wild. Billy Kidd searches the face. Kalle Gustafsson spends an afternoon on Stockholm’s archipelago. Laurie Frankel transforms a home into a fanciful greenhouse. Chris Craymer reveals domestic, intimate hours. Barbara Iweins draws a bath.
Bare is independently published and owned. We live in Amsterdam, London, Paris, Barcelona, New York City, Berlin, Montana, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Drop us a line. We’d love to meet for coffee. (Black. No sugar.)'
