PHOTOGRAPH, Issue 4
Well, somehow we did it. A year after we released the first issue of PHOTOGRAPH, we’re releasing issue four, completing our first year. We’ve got a growing number of subscribers and more and more amazing photographers that want to be a part of something different like this. Thanks so much for being part of it, for reading, making suggestions, and for sharing this with others.
Today Issue 4 of PHOTOGRAPH gets released to you, and with it the commercial work of Nick Hall, the beautiful abstracts of Kathy Beal, and the stunning work of Sam Krisch who blew me away with his work on our first trip to Antarctica. Articles include all the usual great columnists, a feature article about the Zone system for digital photographers, my Without the Camera article on Learning to See, and a great article on the use of space in composition from John Paul Caponigro. As always, it’s large, beautiful, and ad-free.

One of the most magical forests I’ve ever been too, this forest glade on Ramsay Island in Gwaii Haanas was straight out of a story book. I spent a too-short, but very happy, hour here climbing over moss-covered logs and dodging bear scat, half-expecting to hear the trees speak to me. A slow shutter speed […]
More from Gwaii Haanas
I’m heading to Bali tomorrow but I’ll do my best to drop a line. In the meantime, here’s a few more postcards (didn’t see the first ones? You can find them here), and some shop talk about packing logistics, from last week’s trip to Gwaii Haanas. Like the Ocean Light II trip to the Khutzeymateen, […]
