Video review: Brownie magazine

by Grace Wang in October 2016

We recently interviewed Nelson Ng, editor of Lost magazine for our podcast. In it, he talks about how bilingual publishing (in his case, Chinese and English) works best when it mirrors the formation of a music ensemble: the languages complement each other, instead of one feeling like a translation of the other.

His new imprint, Brownie magazine is a great example of this. The photography-themed but storytelling-focused publication is a thick documentation of human connections. With projects looking at loneliness in cities, accidental encounters, and our connections with the people around us, it has great pacing, dramatic spreads, and interesting interviews with photographers about their process. Watch our review below to get a closer look at the content.
