1000 Words Photography Magazine #7

It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the Spring issue, “Place”, is online now. To view it, please go to:

Including an essay on Jeffrey Silverthorne’s stunning series Boystown, The Perfume of Desire, an exhibition review of Ukrainian photographer Rimaldas Viksraitis’ solo show Grimaces of the Weary Village at White Space Gallery, London, an interview with Tokyo-based, French-born Bruno Quinquet on his Salaryman project; special book reviews of East of a New Eden by artist team Yann Mingard & Alban Kalkulya and Hellen van Meene’s Tout va disparaître: Everything Will Disappear as well as a survey of Sam Irons’ ouevre to date, many of the photographers featured in this issue examine the interaction between spaces and people, places and identity as a kind of psychic geography.

In the Books section we cover Starburst: Colour Photography in America 1970-1980, Jeff Wall: The Complete Edition and From Back Home by Anders Peterson and JH Engström, winner of the Author Book Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles 2009.

Finally, the Spring issue also offers an look at the world through the inquiring eyes of Andréas Lang as part of an exclusive multimedia piece entitled Eclipse.

As always, 1000 thanks to all the photographers and writers and a special hand must go to Santiago Taccetti of CCCH Creative Studio, Barcelona for his stellar design work throughout this project.

Many thanks, and best wishes

Tim Clark
