Famous # 10, Nobody is Famous in New York

Famous # 10, Nobody is Famous in New York

The primier concept of Famous was that of an entirely white magazine, empty, devoid of any visual representation. Only names, of real or virtual “anti-contributors”, would have come to the light of such an immaculate matter. Thereafter, Famous became a polymorphous magazine, with fluctuation directive lines and variable contents. Dissolving subjective identities on behalf of the purpose, Famous can also take the decision to use star system’s codes in order to have diverse individualities emerge. Famous wants to be theoretical and practical, intimate and mundane.
