Visible binding, different types of paper, inserts of different sizes. It would be enough to stop at aesthetics to argue that RVM is one of the most beautiful editorial products that you can happen to hold in your hands, but it is the content that removes any doubt.
RVM goes beyond the concept of a magazine to become an art book and a collector's item. Essentially a photography magazine (let the covers not mislead), the RVM scaffolding is made up of photographic projects combined with stories. There are also columns, in-depth articles, reviews, illustrations, patterns that keep secrets and much more for a visual, tactile and olfactory experience that reaches straight to the heart.
Each issue investigates the contemporary starting from a color, as if it were a photographic filter useful for unraveling a reality that is often difficult to understand.
With a ten-year history behind it (previously RearViewMirror 2009-2014), RVM was reborn in 2016 with RVM HUB, the company that deals with photographic publishing, organization of workshops, curation and production of exhibitions, awards and grants that launched the course of the magazine. At the helm the publisher Agnese Porto, the editorial director Giammaria De Gasperis, the editor-in-chief Veronica Daltri and the art director Francesca Pignataro.

Playing on the double meaning of English words red, red, and redo, or redo, Redor Issue is the first issue of the new RVM.
The color red, in three variations, recurs throughout the magazine, starting with the cover artwork created by Sunday Büro, in which the title (The Red Issue) and its double (Redo) appear and disappear, with or without overlapping the attached PVC sheet. The same sheet that will accompany you in the interiors, revealing hidden contents between shades and patterns of patterns.
Inside five photographic projects and to which as many stories are linked. And again, columns which talk about photography through essays, dialogues made up of images, exchanges of letters, reviews, cartographic narratives and re-interpretations of famous photos through illustration
White is the leitmotif of the second issue of the magazine, starting with the cover created once again by Sunday Büro. In the magazine / book you will find, together with the five new photographic projects, four stories and a spoken word, texts inspired by the work of photographers, from which they take their moves and then assume their own independence and authorship.
