VIEW magazine, Issue 5


Recently I was contacted by VIEW magazine who had selected 11 of my photographs which they wanted to publish along side features by several other photographer's in their interactive, I-Pad only, portfolio journal. The images they had chosen, for issue number 5, were from my on-going body of work made in America and were selected from my Flickr photo-stream which covers almost 5 years of largely unedited material. Their final edit was, because of this, an unusual one and personally speaking  it was not entirely the photographs I would have suggested as being truly representative of my overall vision and I understand this must have been a difficult task for them. The selection does cover, though sparsely, the entire 5 years, and I was happy to find that it also included a few of my latest photographs, made in Florida earlier this year, which I intend to write a separate post about shortly. My decision to be part of this magazine was because I have never been involved in this branch of publishing before and find the interactive element and the technology involved exciting with interesting potential(s).
