Covering the burgeoning indie culture of the 1990s, Index regularly employed photographers Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Ryan McGinley, and had interviews with Björk, Brian Eno, Marc Jacobs, and Scarlett Johansson, mixing new talents and established names in music, film, architecture, fashion, art, and politics. The publication also had interviews with local New York City personalities such as Queen Itchie and Ducky Doolittle.
In 2014 it launched Index A to Z: Art, Design, Fashion, Film, and Music in the Indie Era. The book about indie culture was published by Rizzoli.
