Stories have been told to us from a masculine perspective for so long that we need alternative storytelling ! With this ambition, Gaze, the magazine of female perspectives, was born in 2020.
Through intimate storytelling, immersive reporting and a ton of photography, it’s an inclusive platform for the female gaze both in text and image, that explores the social, intimate and cultural aspects of womanhood.
A forum, where twice a year, grande dames and debutantes, young and old, queer and straight, the expected and the uninvited, join their voices in a coffee table print edition both in french and english.
As far as possible of standardized reports, stories that are old news five minutes after being printed and throwaway magazines, each issue is made for you to cherish and keep.
A sensitive and inspiring perspective into intersectional feminism.
