About

Boys by Girls Magazine was started in 2011 by photographers Cecilie Harris and India Hobson. The magazine is a beautiful merge of fashion and portraiture, presenting how female artists view and capture the young male of today. A totally unique concept.

In addition to an annual print issue, beautifully presented in a 160-page publication, the digital platform is weekly filled with stunning exclusive portrait images, fashion editorials as well as model interviews and stories. Showcasing the best of model talent, captured by the rising stars of female photographers; the magazine not only showcases the latest in gorgeous menswear, but also captures the soul of the boys we work with.

Boys by Girls is often described as a sensitive and poetic view of the contemporary young man, providing a refreshing change to the fashion landscape. The Boys by Girls photographers often look for the quiet beauty that not everyone sees, resulting in a unique magazine that hovers somewhere between art and editorial.

Editor-in-Chief Cecilie Harris and editor Georgie Wileman's goal is to create images that make an impact with our readers, presenting the contemporary young man in a beautiful way - the way we see them through our eyes.

We basically need YOU, our lovely readers, to help make sure Boys by Girls Magazine is brought to the world with all it's goodness! We’ve got the foundations for a successful, innovative and fun idea laid down, but need to the funds necessary to be able to produce the perfect print issue. We want to keep all of that Boys by Girls beauty that you know and love; and not compromise on what we know will make "Lessons" the best issue it can be. After all, it is going to end up on your coffee tables!

Risks and challenges

Printing is expensive, and it takes blood, sweat and tears to build up a magazine until you have a comfortable revenue to support it. Our 4th Issue was our first issue on a print run, and we are depending on the help of Kickstarter to fund our next issue. Our 5th issue 'Lessons' will be printed on beautiful, thick uncoated paper and be a beauty of a magazine.

We reach out to Kickstarter and everyone that likes what we do, to help support us and be part of helping Boys by Girls Magazine continue to grow globally.

If we don't reach our goal set for this project, we will not get any of your donations; so we appreciate any help you can give us by donating! You can also support the campaign by passing this on to friends and family, posting on your social media and generally sharing the love etc. Every little help counts.

Looking forward to sharing Boys by Girls Issue 5 'Lessons' with you all.

Thank you for your support!
- The Boys by Girls Team
