The Protagonist stands out from the crowd as the most prominent figure. 

The Protagonist breaks records to set new ones.

The Protagonist Magazine offers in-depth articles about and interviews with protagonists of stage and screen and the art world. London-based editors Ram Shergill and Daen Palma Huse offer an insight into the world of fine art and fashion photography, illustration and contemporary art in an eclectic mix. As a collectible hardback book, The Protagonist Magazine revives the tradition of luxury magazine publications such as The Yellow Book, which was published in the 1890s.

Covers ISSUE 2:  

Helen McCrory – An exclusive editorial with the internationally acclaimed theatre and film actress shot at Dennis Severs’ House features in this issue. The detailed drawings on the cover are by Colin Verdi, taking inspiration from the aesthetic of the magazine, Helen McCrory and the world of stage and screen that she is part of.

Dovydas Kreivys – For this cover, Dovydas Kreivys stars in a poetic art shoot alongside Ben Slade, before a backdrop of 17th century rare and handmade tapestries.

Andrej Halasa – In a photographic technique extensively explored by photographer Ram Shergill with Leica cameras, Andrej Halasa was photographed at a long exposure time which allowed him to be ‘painted with light’, creating an abstract effect. The concept is explored further inside the publication, in collaboration with artist Julieta Hernández Adame, using graphic letterpress designs.
