After a thirty-seven year hiatus, Holiday magazine returned at the behest of Parisian art director Franck Durand. Renowned for its bold layout, literary credibility, and ambitious photographers, Holiday portrayed the world like no other periodical. The premise was simple: send a writer and photographer to a specific location and ask them to capture their vision of the place without constraints. Some of the most celebrated writing by Joan Didion, Jack Kerouac and Truman Capote first appeared on the pages of Holiday.
