An independent magazine with the intention of reproducing the visual imagination. Featuring images by a selection of guest artists, the magazine is designed without the use of words and packaged as printed matter. In contrast to the unprecedented exposure to ephemeral imagery consumed through the internet and social media (RE)PICTURE works together with artists of varied nationalities to develop a modern and enduring image ecosystem that symbolizes the pursuit of a universal language.

What do we think of when we look at a single picture?
The transmission of an image involves “material” (chemistry), “shape” (figure), “mind” (impression) and also includes “space” as a keyword.
Like a chemical reaction, those visible elements interweave with the invisible to create a cycle of association when the imagination of a viewer is applied.
Believing that the human imagination is also one of our planet’s invaluable assets, we adopted “resource” as the theme for the first issue of our magazine.
