LIFE Magazine

Model Karlie Kloss and her husband, venture capitalist Josh Kushner, are at the forefront of the exciting revival of the iconic photo magazine, LIFE. Their combined expertise and passion for storytelling through visuals are charting a new course for this legendary publication.

This initiative aims to bring LIFE’s rich historical essence into the modern digital age and to introduce this venerable platform to a new generation of photographers and visual artists.

LIFE Magazine

Founded in 1883, LIFE magazine quickly made a name for itself as the premier weekly news and photojournalism publication. With groundbreaking coverage of World War II and iconic images from renowned photographers such as Alfred Eisenstaedt and Margaret Bourke-White, LIFE became a household name and an influential cultural force.

Over the years, LIFE continued to evolve and adapt to the changing media landscape. It featured in-depth photo essays, human interest stories, and celebrity profiles that captivated readers around the world. However, with the rise of digital media, print publications like LIFE began to struggle.

The decline of print media has been a widespread phenomenon in recent years. With the rise of the internet and social media, people have shifted their consumption habits towards digital platforms. This change has had a significant impact on traditional print publications, resulting in declining circulation numbers and revenue.

In 2000, LIFE magazine ceased its weekly publication and became a monthly newsstand-only magazine. However, it eventually stopped printing altogether in 2007, leaving behind an impressive legacy but no current presence in the media landscape.

But now, with the backing of Karlie Kloss and Josh Kushner, LIFE magazine is making a comeback.

The Kushner and Kloss-helmed Life is tentatively set to resume regular publishing in early 2025, signaling a new era for the esteemed publication. This revival plans to marry the rich tradition and historical gravitas of its print heritage with the dynamic capabilities of digital platforms. It aims to create an interactive and immersive experience for readers, featuring high-quality visuals and compelling storytelling.

In a statement, Kloss and Kushner shared their excitement about the revival of LIFE magazine, saying that it “holds such a special place in American culture.” They also expressed their commitment to preserving the essence of LIFE while bringing new energy and perspective to the publication.

This is more than a publication’s revival; it’s the revival of voices, perspectives, and the shared human experience. A very ambitious undertaking, but with the combined vision and passion of Kloss and Kushner, it is a promising one.
