About

MISSION STATEMENT

Musée Magazine is a dynamic, digital quarterly and interactive website dedicated to featuring works by emerging and established artists. Sometimes quirky, sometimes sensual, always unpredictable, Musée moves on the cutting edge as an unparalleled photo-based platform. Today, Musée finds itself at the vanguard of photography and film culture. We strive to empower promising artists as they navigate and launch future careers throughout the global photographic community, while commingling with industry influencers to provide relevant content for academics, students, and photography aficionados alike. Like a photographic library, Musée has a broad appeal, encompassing all genres from the photo-world’s beloved masters to the new, exciting, and unexpected. 


FOUNDER & EDITOR IN CHIEF

Andrea Blanch BW 1500px.jpg

Andrea Blanch is a New York-based award-winning fashion, fine art and conceptual photographer. She began her photographic career under the tutelage of Richard Avedon, with her first client being American Vogue. Blanch is referred to as "the woman who knows how to capture a woman." Her work has been published in Details, G.Q., the French, English, American, German, Australian and Italian issues of Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Marie Claire and Rolling Stone. Blanch has had one woman shows, been featured in group exhibitions and books, as well as private collections.

Musée Magazine began for Blanch as a flash of inspiration. She sought to create a magazine which gives exposure to up-and-coming photographers alongside the industry’s most prestigious figures. Musée strives to act as a guide and mentor for emerging photographers, as well as expose our audience to insightful and in-depth interviews with the most important artists of the contemporary photographic world. Since then Musée has grown into an expansive online resource with an ever-growing archive of issues that engages with gallerists, curators, collectors, and photographers alike.

In addition to Musée Magazine, Blanch currently teaches at the International Center for Photography and is a member of APA. Her photobook, Italian Men: Love and Sex, was published with Rizzoli in 1999. For more details, visit Andrea's website at www.andreablanch.com.
