For SNAP! Magazine’s 15th issue, contributors were given the opportunity to explore the idea of Embellishment. An endlessly broad subject, the issue looks at everything from accessories and adornments like tattoos and jewelry, to embellishment in painting, photo and sculpture, to manipulation of the intangible, like memory.
A free quarterly art fashion and culture publication now in its fourth year, SNAP! Magazine started out as a kind of cult object in the city where we live, Montreal. This fall we launched our 14th issue and with it marked a whole new phase in our business. We’ve taken our magazine nationwide and dramatically increased our distribution.
Montreal’s only free and independent quarterly magazine SNAP! delivers a quirky mix of fashion, art and youth culture in their new 10×14 inch matte paper format. Their twelfth issue hit the streets on October 1 and has a distinct nostalgic emphasis.
I’ve been a big fan of free street magazine SNAP!, which casts a discerning eye over creative happenings in the artistic hub of Montreal, since they started. Having edited street mags in the past, I know how challenging it can be to assemble a crack team of writers and photographers and keep them enthused to improve the publication issue after issue. The team behind SNAP! have done this exceptionally well.
We love free Montreal-based street magazine, SNAP!, which takes an insidery peek at the creative happenings in that lofty city. They’ve just released of Issue 9, in which contributors were invited to submit work based on one or a series of Three-Letter Words. The cover image is one of a series of photo-booth shots by Canadian photographer Robin Hart Hiltz, built around the word EAT.
Made-in-Montreal independent art magazine SNAP! brings out its eighth issue this month and gets a little bit gritty and pensive with their SURVIVAL theme. Reflections on war, prison, personal struggle and surviving life in the city are some of what you will find in the Fall issue, alongside a dark warrior aesthetic and a strong photo lineup including an on-location shoot with five of Montreal’s best graffiti artists and a series on indoor office plants. Definitely worth checking out, and featuring a sick ad for Lost At E Minor designed by Montreal mixed-media artist Jeremy Dabrowski (it’s on page 15).
I used to edit a free street mag in Australia called STU, so I was impressed when I came across a similarly sized one out of Montreal called SNAP!, which expertly covers fashion, art, music and other creative pursuits with a healthy focus on spotlighting local creatives. We checked in with Hannah Byrne, who along with Shayl Prisk is one of the two founders of the publication, and asked her about the spark behind the launch of SNAP! ‘Initially the spark came when Shayl and I sat down after a long day in our kitchen jobs and decided we wanted to do something different, more creative. Over the course of several months we brainstormed over lattes and pints and talked about exactly what kind of magazine we would want to read and what kind of stories we would want to tell. It was a really exciting time, starting this thing from scratch and deciding where it was going to go’.

We love the look of new, free Montreal-based street magazine, SNAP!, an arts and lifestyle publication which focuses on all that exciting work that is conceived, created and marketed in Montreal by artists, creative minds and young entrepreneurs.
Light-painting photographer Patrick Rochon was recently commissioned by Red Bull Illume and Snap! Orlando to craft a series of crazily beautiful long-exposure photographs showing the light trails left behind by wakeboarders in action. Basically the wakeboarders did their thing, but with LCD lights strapped to their boards. These are mesmerizing.
