While still at university in Sussex, former Royal High student, Emma Phillips decided to launch her own magazine. Chróma has now been published and is a credit to the creativity and vision of its publisher/director. Emma says of her creation:
“Chróma is a magazine about colour. It is a print and online platform that features a fusion of talented international individuals. It is the amalgamation of poets, thinkers, artists and photographers. Our first issue has one uniting factor, the colour red.
Chróma strives to become a source of inspiration, a place where you can explore form, imagination and ideas. We aim to delve into the deeper questions- provoking interesting conversations and encouraging people to think out-of-the-box.”
Chróma is engaging, thought-provoking and beautifully put together, you can view the online version at www.chromamagazine.com or buy a hard copy from Magalleria on Broad Street in Bath, priced at a very reasonable £10. Each issue has a colour focus; the first edition is the red issue, which explores the duality of meaning red, as a colour, holds and explores cultural differences within that dichotomy. Her opening editorial closes with:
“For me red is the colour of life. It exists in two extremes, and I hope you will find this passion with our pages. As Emile Zola states, “I would rather die of passion than of boredom”
…We’re with them both on that!
