Snap! We love it again

You might remember back in September we posted about a magazine called Snap! It was the Double D issue and we loved it.

That was issue 14. We received issue 16 in the post the other day and it didn’t disappoint. The theme of this issue is duos, and the team at Snap! have used it to create a magazine that’s balanced to perfection.

One of the first spreads shows coffee and cigarettes, and peanut butter and jelly. The photos are light and airy and there’s a sense of freedom, a pleasure in the little things in life.

Genetic Portraits is a really interesting photography feature that explores genetic differences and similarities by photographing two members of the same family and joining them together down the middle of the face. It’s done so well that at first I thought the picture on the left was just one person. It’s the sort of feature that could easily have run to six pages but they’ve stuck to their theme and we get just the two pages – a clever way of leaving the reader wanting more.

The team have used their theme brilliantly, turning out simple and symmetrical pages that keep the reader engaged regardless of whether they’re dealing with sandwich fillings or life and death. Dead and Alive (below) represents mortality with two bunches of flowers held in front of models’ faces. They haven’t tried to overcomplicate things and it’s refreshing.

They have all of their back issues online for you to have a look through. Enjoy.
