‘Matto’, which means ‘crazy’ in Italian (editors and creative directors Aldo Buscalferri and Dominika Hadelova are Italian and Czech, respectively) is a magazine about artists where disorder is the main philosophy. Published in Paris, Matto presents an intimate portrait of contemporary artists at work. Delving deep into their inspirations and processes, the magazine introduces a varied selection of painters, sculptors, designers and makers, inviting readers into the cluttered corners and spattered studios where they spend their days.

We sent out issue 5 — which is straplined “When the reality creates fiction” — to subscribers in June. We love the photos sent in of the magazine, which has two alternate cover options. Scroll down to see our favourite picture of all that won this month’s photo competition.

5. Colour co-ordination

We really like the way the carpet in the back of this pic matches the eyelashes!

4. Close-up

This close-cropped shot of the eye cover on a white background makes the eye cover even more magnetic and unsettling.

3. Garden of your dreams

We love the pictures that we get sent in that let us drool over other people’s houses, and gardens. This picture — showing off Matto’s alternate cover and an extremely beautiful balcony — is particularly dreamy.

2. Video performance

Truly we are in love with this ‘video performance’ of Stack subscriber Thom Wolfe opening his June delivery.

This image of Matto’s evocative eye glinting out in John Edwin’s wonderfully purple, space-inspired room is our June 2021 winner. Thank you John!
