28 Apr Exclusiv Debut Issue Release
Exclusiv releases first issue!
Welcome to the first edition of Exclusiv, a monthly, online and print, magazine that focuses on the highest quality boudoir, lingerie and nude/implied nude modeling and photography. As part of Elan Vital Media (EVM), Exclusiv donates a portion of all profits raised to charity.
Over the years there has been great criticism of the main stream media for its portrayal of and creation of unattainable standards for women (and more recently men as well) of all ages. The use of editing programs continues to be a part of photography as the art continues to mature into the digital age. As most of the edits are minor, as they pertain to lighting, exposure and other technical matters within photography, they are accepted as industry standard. The more egregious offenders, that over use photography editing software have created the perfect model by cutting and adding to model’s bodies, much like Dr. Frankenstein.
Two key elements that we strive to bring to the Exclusiv brand are a dedication to pushing the boundaries in our creators and our creative content; but, most importantly, we want to expand the concept that beauty is not narrowly defined nor that we should accept the broader media’s standard of beauty.
There is a quote credited to the Chinese philosopher Confucius that says, “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” Therefore, Exclusiv will bring you content that you aren’t used to seeing in other publications. We are body positive, which means we find beauty in all its forms. We hope to empower the people that appear in Exclusiv by offering them a space to feel safe and secure in however they choose to
We don’t want our models to be defined by any body issues or limitations and we hope that through this process that they can find greater inner strength and hopefully inspire others who may be struggling with body image issues and self-worth. We want to celebrate this freedom from societal pressure and norms with the entire Exclusiv family, be they our models, our photographers, our staff and especially you, our readers. Thank you for supporting all the work we are trying to do. We hope we continue to impress you
with the work and stories of our staff and models as they share what is important to them.
