It defines itself as a new magazine with a story, why Holiday is a magazine that was born in 1946. Renowned for its bold layout, literary credibility and ambitious choice of photographers, Holiday has interpreted the world like no other periodical. The premise was simple: to send a writer and photographer to a specific location and ask them to capture their vision of the place without constraints on style, length or budget.
Interrupted in 1977, the publications resumed thirty-seven years later, in 2014. Holiday she returned at the behest of the artistic director Franck Durand. The magazine remains true to the essence, aesthetics and sense of the journalistic adventure of its ancestor, but in a format that also celebrates fashion. Editorials shot by industry-leading photographers and emerging talents coexist beautifully with the work of today's best literary voices. And true to its original concept, Holiday he still sends collaborators to produce a portrait of a place that is both intimate and timeless.
Holiday is a semi-annual international publication based in Paris.
It is written in English, but its heart is French.
