From the makers of Hipstamatic, a camera app for iPhone widely known for its antique film camera image filters, comes a new digital publication for iPad called the ‘Snap Magazine‘, that combines Hipstamatic user pictures with print and other art. The monthly magazine that promises to be a photography mag as well as a culture and lifestyle publication, contains pictures from Hipstamatic users and other artists and print from a Hipstamatic editorial team.
As described by AllthingsD:
Snap elaborates on the Hipstamatic aesthetic by providing interviews with subjects like musicians and tattoo artists accompanied by pictures notated with the in-app lens and film with which they were taken.
The art in Snap isn’t 100 percent Hipstamatic photos — but much of it has the trademark square crop and obvious post-processing. There aren’t any ads in the magazine except a few promotions for a new Hipstamatic “global art project” to create more beauty in the world called #makebeautiful.
Hipstamatic CEO Lucas Buick said he sees the launch as an attempt to combat social media burnout. What he means by that, he said, is that right now Hipstamatic users find photos by following people and hashtags around the Web, which don’t necessarily provide a stage for the art that people are creating.
Best of all, Snap Magazine is a free subscription and a must have for fans of Hipstamatic, photography and design.
