COLORS Magazine is a magazine about the rest of the world. It is also a product that is lovingly created by a team of creative, awe-inspiring individuals. With themes ranging from shit (everyone does it, so why not?) to happiness (a pursuit older than time itself), COLORS is also a magazine that is not afraid to wear its social conscience on its sleeve. Needless to say, the archives are pretty amazing but the videos occasionally included are not too bad themselves. Produced as accompanying pieces, these videos are also standalone products that, like the photos and words, showcase the most complex being on Earth: humanity.
The people featured in each issue are not afraid to have their voices heard. They laugh, they shriek, they yawn, they orate. They are alive and they are enjoying every bit of it. Be it an Iranian girl shrieking in excitement over her first trip to the sea, or a group of Brazilian women who embrace dancing as a way of self-love, COLORS Magazine’s message cannot ring any more louder: there’s much more to this world for us to discover and see. All you have to do is to keep your eyes – and mind – open.
