Mastermind Magazine is a cultural review based in Paris and published in English. Founded in 2017 by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, the magazine is published twice a year and is available in select bookshops and concept stores throughout Europe, Asia and North America. Proudly independent, Mastermind is renowned for its intelligent, nuanced and stylish vision of our world and those changing it.

Like a novel, Mastermind is structured in chapters, each with a theme that we explore through different interviews, features and photo essays. The magazine’s editorial remit is broad, drawing connections between seemingly disparate subjects including art, architecture, cinema, fashion, literature, philosophy, sociology and countless other niche and entertaining topics. Each issue features interviews with a selection of Masterminds chosen for their talent, vision and impact on global culture.

Contributing photographers include some of the world’s leading image makers, as well as those leading the next generation of photography talent. The result is imagery that remains impactful, fresh, original and inspiring from cover to cover.

In form and content, Mastermind is timeless. Its editorial subjects are evergreen, and readers who return to its debut issue today will discover stories as relevant as they were at the time of publication. The magazine’s hard cover and luxurious paper ensure each issue is an object to collect and revisit, time and again.

Alongside the magazine is Mastermind Studio, a full-service styling, art direction and production agency. Using Mastermind’s distinctive creative vision and editorial voice, we create print and digital content for brands we love.
