A Look Inside Volt Magazine
by Alice Byrne
Volt Magazine is fairly different from the rest. In a good way. For a start, its huge, but more interestingly, it’s not bound. It sounds odd at first, but it works perfectly, like instantly you have pages and pages of pre-made pictures to do with what you want. The pages are folded together, and split in half; Volt Man and in this case, Volt 11.
Inside it is full to the brim with editorials, fashion, conceptual, cultural, menswear, womenswear – it has it all. My first thought was to look and see what made it to the covered central page, in this case a landscape fashion photograph by Linda Brownlee. Other stand out photographs include a beauty editorial shot by Rui Faria, titled Leila, and menswear, photographed by Adam Hinton.
Volt is certainly a visual publication. There is some written content, but it is not overbearing, and with the extra-large sizing and folding format, it seems a waste to fill page after page with text. The format lends itself so well to impacting imagery. I for one will definitely be after the next issue of Volt once it is published. I already want to pin half the magazine to my walls.
