Responding to the urgent need for sustainable living, Above magazine calls upon the environmentally conscious and everyone else interested in the future by sharpening its focus on the endangered beauty of the world.
It is their firm belief that photography, the plastic arts, fashion, architecture and design can be instrumental in raising awareness about the need to preserve nature and their aim to share their opinionated, yet aesthetic vision, with their readers.
Their team is composed of people who believe that the evolution of our world and the people in it matters deeply; who value respect above all, for themselves, for others and for their surroundings, wherever they may be. Above magazine is made by and for those who recognize that the true appeal of beautiful objects and places derives from their inherent rarity and fragility. For them, desirable often means simple rather than extravagant, and living more responsibly without succumbing to self-righteousness is one of the greatest forms of sophistication.
Above is a new kind of lifestyle magazine. Their inspiration lies in the ever so diverse beauty of men and women, the preciousness of the earth and the challenges and opportunities of the future.
They are committed to promoting an art of living that improves the environment without depriving daily life of its intrinsic pleasures. Their contributors are among the world’s great photographers and writers, who freely showcase here the splendours of a vanishing world and remind them of the immediate, vital, need to safeguard what remains of it.
Because, like Dostoyevsky, they believe that "beauty will save the world".
