Elska Magazine Issue (11) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA


Product Description

Elska is a magazine dedicated to photographs of real men with flaws unedited - along with their stories - delivering an intimate, cultural and eye-and-mind-opening experience.

With its combination of nude and clothed photography, and its interviews with the subjects, Elska is part quasi-intellectual male pin-up mag; part sexy anthropology journal; part international street style zine. It is provocative, authentic, imperfect (''cos perfect is boring''), and made with love. London photographer Liam Campbell, the editor and moving force behind Elska, 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 to know them, because they are real, not just images on a page''.

Elska's very first issue to be made in the USA features the city of Providence for the honour. Capital of Rhode Island, America's smallest but loveliest state, Providence has it all: culture, artfulness, history, beauty, diversity and of course, lovely men!

The  fourteen Rhode Islanders featured were photographed out and about and in their homes with a naturalistic and intimate style, during the most gorgeous season in New England, the autumn, when the leaves were at their most colourful.

Beyond the images, there's a text to go with each boy. The stories for this issue are perhaps the best of any Elska so far. There's Dee W's tale of finally maybe feeling at home in Providence; Samuel K-M's story of a Providence bridge's cursing of past relationships; Norbert G's recount of a recent threesome; Matthew L's narrative on a typical night at a local gay bar; and Adam C's "things he said / things I said / things I should have said" report that will leave you shouting "fuck yeah"!

164 pages, including texts in English, Mandarin and French (all with English translations), Published May 2017
