“I don’t read the magazines cause I don’t want to be influenced by trends”. A friend said this to me and got me thinking. Why do I read magazines? Just to let you know, I read all kinds of magazines; from Vogue to National Geographic, from Dazed to Works that Work.  The answer is the following. Magazines are filled with ways to tell stories. In one image, in an images series in different writing styles, both long and short and of course in the overall issue of the magazine. I read and explore a magazine for joy, to learn new things and to be inspired by the great variety of ways in which stories can be told.
