Marie Hocepied is our brandnew guesteditor. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of Recto Verso Magazine an lives in Brussels.
After working as a freelance journalist for years, I felt the need to come up with my very own online magazine. That was three years ago, when I was pregnant with my second child, a real challenge. I thus consider Recto Verso Magazine my third baby.
In Recto Verso Magazine I let my readers discover the hidden face of personalities, artists and (inter)national creatives on a very personal, intimate level. To support me in this project, I surrounded myself with an ultracreative team including the Oskar duo for the photography.
Every month, we give carte blanche to an artist with a totally different background to realise our cover/the homepage of our magazine. The website entails recurrent features such as « le bureau de », « dans les casseroles de », « dans le jardin de », … Recto Verso is first of all a story of gatherings and good taste. Something very intuitive.
Moreover, every year we publish a physical magazine, a ‘Best of’ that is sold by specialist bookshops or concept-stores. In Brussels we sell in Filigranes, Candide, Peinture Fraîche, Wiels, Hunting and Collecting … In Antwerp and Ghent you can find them at Copyright. When you’re in Paris you can find Recto Verso Magazine in Colette or at Palais de Tokyo.
