Love (magazine)

Love is a bi-annual British style magazine founded in 2009 by stylist and fashion journalist Katie Grand, who remains editor-in-chief.[2] Since 2012, Lulu Kennedy has been editor-at-large and Alex Fury has been editor of this Condé Nast publication.[3] Suzanne Weinstock of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism described the magazine this way in 2010:[1]

Despite its glossy pages, the magazine has a raw look. Black-and-white photography dominates, and most of the color photography has a muted palette, as if the pictures have aged and faded. Some images are clearly fashion photography; others are more like inventive snapshots. Nudity is plentiful in many styles, from the grittily pornographic to the breathtakingly artistic.
