Propaganda Magazine

Fred H. Berger will be a name known by most goths everywhere. If not then where have you been?

In 1982, Berger founded a magazine dedicated to the gothic subculture called Propaganda. It focused on music, art, literature, and sexuality.

What set this magazine apart from anything else was its photography and Berger’s work became the iconic focus of the publication. Images included lush gothic bodies in graveyards, fetish models dressed in leather and beautiful people in velvet and lace – it was a feast for the eyes of goths everywhere.

Take a look at the gorgeous photographs below and check out the addictive Facebook page that was created as an archive for Propaganda Magazine.
