Our latest find is Odiseo – a biannual publication that offers both visual and intellectual stimuli circulating around erotic photography and contemporary essays. The most interesting aspect of Odiseo is that it re-defines the confines of traditional erotic publishing by balancing philosophical stories and essays with images that lie in between art and erotica.
Odiseo is a project initiated by Barcelona based design agency Folch in 2011. The studio works with a wide range of clients across multiple disciplines including brand identity, print, editorial, publishing and digital platforms as well as content creation and creative direction.
‘We do define ourselves as erotic, but not as a magazine. As opposed to most magazines we do not seek to publish current content, but rather speculative essays dealing with topics that may or may not be of relevance in the near future.’
- Pol Pérez
Odiseo Vol.7 is dedicated to the notion of Truth. The issue is launched as a triptych, which was shot by photographer Juan Hernández. The three fragmented covers lie somewhere between pleasure and suffering, between brutality and love. In this publication you’ll find a sensitive approach with photographic essays by Paul Jung, Maud Rémy-Lonvis and Bennie Julian Gay as well as some great written opinion pieces including Eugenia Lapteva and Hans Frederik Jacobsen. Price €12 / £10 / $16.
