A quarterly, Senses has just completed its first year of publication featuring photo essays, interviews, and travel features. Local writers Elisabeth Sherwin, Robert Clark Young and Claire St. John have written about John Lescroart, Narci David and Lydia Mondavi.
The work of Professor Suad Joseph of UC Davis also has been highlighted.
Local and international artists and their works are featured in each issue. The founder, editor-in-chief and creative director is Landgraf whose special talent is bringing gorgeous photo essays to each issue by showcasing art, fashion and jewelry.
“It’s been a remarkable year as a start-up business and magazine,” she said. “And we are only getting stronger thanks to our staff, contributors, and our unique brand that celebrates the beauty of life in its many forms.”
Past issues of the magazine have featured travel pieces focusing on South Africa and Dubai.
The magazine, although published in Sacramento, is designed to be an international read and is distributed in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York, London, Toronto, Vancouver and Dubai.
The publisher, Monfared of TM4 Media, said the magazine’s goal is to explore beauty and build bridges between cultures.
“By taking advantage of our family’s international business experience and our cultural ties to many parts of the world, I believe we’re helping to make Senses a valuable resource,” said Monfared.
