Five photographers develop an online magazine. Had you had enough of arguing with editors and art directors?

Well, it is true that we were tired of not getting our stories published the way we wanted, or not even published at all. But although this was one of the many ideas we had in mind when we started this project, we soon moved away from this as we began to discover the new language we could develop thanks to the new technology we have available. Our current motivation goes far beyond self-publishing, and aims to push the boundaries of storytelling.


What will you do differently compared to current print magazines?

Mainly, we’re publishing content that you wouldn't see in any regular printed newspaper, as obviously you cannot reproduce video, audio or 3d animation on a paper. Me-Mo Magazine is a photographic platform that will use the interactivity that this new technology offers in order to enhance the message of the author. When it comes to the stories we are looking for, long-term projects are our priority. In a way, photography is the soul of Me-Mo and interactivity is its body.
Of course, there are some publications that are using some sort of interactivity on their online version, but they are not fully dedicated to it. Our goal is to create a powerful and more complete tool which will allow the author to present their story in a deeper, broader way.


Taking pictures or creating a magazine – which is your greatest passion?

I would say that creating this platform will allow us to keep following our great passion, which is to take pictures.
