#59 Magazine; Black and white photography galore! Mimi Berlin visited the head quarters of #59 Magazine in Amsterdam the other day. Dutch photographer Mart Engelen is the father of #59 Magazine, a large glossy newspaper-like magazine filled with black and white photography. The love of Mart Engelen for (vintage) black and white photography reflects in #59 magazine; the magazine is beautifully printed and has no staples or (glue) binding. We won’t elaborate on that any further, It’s always best to go and see it for yourself; the magazine is for sale at selected stores worldwide (in Amsterdam at Pols Potten and the Van Gogh Museum in Paris at Colette and at Musee d’Orsay in Antwerp at Graanmarkt 13 in Milan at Corso Como 10) Mart Engelen is a photographer himself, his work is accompanied by interviews from his hand, he is interested in traveling, art and photography…. Furthermore, Engelen is a collector of, amongst others, Jean Dieuzaide, Edward Quinn, Andre Villers and Ernst Scheidegger. Part of his collection can be seen and bought at the Suite 59 Gallery in Amsterdam www.59magazine.nl.
