Modellenland magazine: a one-man operation

It started as a joke and now people from 140 different countries read Modellenland Magazine. The magazine is a stage for photographers, models and artists that have something to do with fashion and music. In this interview Peter tells us more about his magazine, which he creates all by himself.

1. Can you tell us something about yourself?

‘’My name is Peter van Poucke and I live in Belgium. I went to cooking school and I worked in the hospitality industry for 25 years. 15 years ago, I started photography as a hobby and I still love doing it.’’

2. When and why did you start Modellenland Magazine?

‘’I actually started the magazine 2 years ago as a joke. My photographs were published in many online magazines at the time and that is how I came up with the idea to create one myself. I invited some friends to be in the magazine and that is how the first issue arose. I didn’t expect it, but I received many submissions after the first issue. That is why I continued creating the Modellenland Magazine. Before I knew it, the magazine became international and now I already published 180 issues. Bear in mind that the magazine is a one-man operation :).’’
