In Print Published biannually, 8 Magazine looks beneath the surface and shines a spotlight on the issues that shape our world. Over a period of ten years in publication, 8 magazine took the traditional format of words and pictures to a new level. For each issue, we chose a theme to explore, usually a contemporary issue that requires investigating and understanding, and seek the best ways to bring the subject to light. With its unique mix of reportage, commentary, interviews and essays, 8 magazine grew to occupy a unique place in the publishing sphere, offering world class analysis through essays, photographic and written.
