Elska is a project devoted to sharing our voices and our bodies through honest photography and personal stories. Through our publications, we take you to different cities around the world, introduce you to a dozen or so local guys, and let you get to know them and a bit about gay life in their city. Filled with positivity, sincerity, ad-free and lovingly made, Elska is an independent gay mag that you can truly be proud to own.
Elska Magazine is our flagship product, your key to discovering each Elska city through its local boys and local stories. They are over 150 pages, split into individual chapters that focus on a local guy, filled with evocative images taken of him in the city and at home, plus the story he wrote for us. The experience is most intimate, letting readers feel like they’ve travelled there with us and really gotten to know these men.
This issue was made in Reykjavík, Iceland. A stunning and charming city, surrounded by some of the most eerily beautiful landscapes, the world’s most northerly capital is our setting for Elska’s third edition. It’s also a very special sort of homecoming for Elska – indeed the word ‘elska’ is the Icelandic for ‘love’. Inside you’ll meet fifteen local boys, photographed at home and in the great outdoors. And like the previous issue, the Reykjavík men are a diverse lot – though all are Icelandic residents, we meet expats from France, Belgium, Turkey and Brazil… so it’s not all blonds here (though we have those too!).
In our Elska Dehors features, we also include work by two other photoartists from beyond Reykjavík. There’s a series from Rio de Janeiro by Lauro Justino as well as a set from Paris by Pedro Ivan Serralva. This issue is an absolute essential for your Elska collection, and Reykjavík too should be on your travel bucket list. Velkominn!
