Hasselblad to Publish New Magazine


In this age of digital everything, it's nice to see that some companies still think analog has its place.

Victor Hasselblad AB is publishing a new magazine called Victor by Hasselblad. The quarterly publication will be a glossy 60 pages and will be published the old-fashioned way on paper, not a PDF or electronic version.

The company describes the new magazine this way:

Welcome to Victor by Hasselblad. The new magazine from Hasselblad that will be as uncompromising, as innovative and as passionate as our company's founder, a magazine that will continue to blaze a trail of high-end imaging, defining the very concept of photography itself and providing useful tools for present and coming generations of photographer.

The magazine will cost $16 per issue, or $49 plus shipping for a yearly subscription. You can subscribe here. But be warned. I could not sign up using the online form on either a Mac or a PC using various browsers. The form insisted that I live in Alabama (which I don't) and no matter what I did, it would not let me change it.
