Classiq Journal
Magazine

Classiq Journal is an online publication written by Ada Pîrvu that celebrates cinema, culture, style and storytelling. It is a singular point of view driven by visual curiosity and an unwavering quest for thought provoking stories.

Classiq Journal is also a place of meeting: with artists, photographers, filmmakers, designers, writers, makers, style makers, craftsmen, amazingly talented and creative people, explorers of places and of the self, who are kind enough to open up and tell their stories in our interviews.

Classiq Journal is about style, too, in many of its forms, and about a simple way of life. It is about personal style in all its complexity, permeating all aspects of one’s life. It is about being authentic, about embracing self expression, about living mindfully and being present, about freedom of your time and of your own thoughts. It is about living life as a conscious choice.

But, ultimately, Classiq Journal is about living a well-cultured life, one in which dreaming, creativity and storytelling play center role.

  • Tyrone Williams & Madison Dinelle: Chiasm
    Publication
    Ceremony Press
    International
    Many photographers have experimented with the ‘Call & Response’ model of collaboration, where images function like links in a chain – a visual duel, or game of chess. This book, in which these two photographers pair up their photographs, feels more to me like a matching card game. Chiasm describes in biology the point at which two filamentous structures like a tendon or nerve diagonally intersect in an X (more…)

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made.

    Nov 5, 2023 – Mar 16, 2024
    MoMA
    New York, USA
    For 30 years, the photographs of artist An-My Lê have engaged the complex fictions that inform how we justify, represent, and mythologize warfare and other forms of conflict. Lê does not take a straightforward photojournalistic approach to depicting combat. Rather, with poetic attention to politics and landscape, she meditates on the meaning of perpetual violence, war’s environmental impact, and the significance of diaspora. (more…)
