Occam is a new, international magazine from the established media company, Bent Frame Publishing. Occam focuses on high fashion and conceptual photography—telling stories without words. We love the quirky, the beautiful, the unusual, and the visionary. And we are all about high quality.

The upcoming issue of our sister publication, Alke Magazine, features Edo Ferragamo (musician and fashion scion), Iana Salenko (Prima Ballerina at the Staatsballett Berlin), and Anton Semenov (album cover artist for Infected Mushroom’s eighth studio album), and includes MusiCares (The Recording Academy), as well as Andreoli Fine Jewelry, Steinway & Sons, and London Labs. We have incredible opportunities in place for Occam as well. We also love making connections for our talented contributors whenever possible to help boost careers, and look forward to showcasing your work.
