1000 Words Photography Magazine #8

It is two years to the day since the launch of 1000 Words Photography Magazine and what a journey it has been. There have been many highlights but the recent news that our sister site, 1000 Words Photography Blog ranked #3 in Creative Tourist’s list of Top 25 UK Arts & Culture Blogs was definitely the icing on the cake.

So without further ado it gives us enormous pleasure to inform you that the Summer issue “Horizons” is available to view now at www.1000wordsmag.com

Featuring an overview of David Birkin’s performance photographs, a special book review of the new monograph from Sarah Pickering, Explosions, Fires and Public Order, as well as essays on Emily Hanako Momohara, Massimo Vitali and Nuno Cera and an exhibition review of Michael Corridore’s Angry Blake Snake at The Aperture Foundation Gallery, New York, once again 1000 Words includes a remarkably international cast of contributors and brings together a unique combination of perspectives that explore the limits of photography’s potential.

In the books section, we cover Asger Carlsen: Wrong, Miroslav Tichý and The Pleasures of Good Photographs by Gerry Badger.

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 art direction throughout this project.

“Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance. Always, I am on the threshold.” W. Eugene Smith

Many thanks and best wishes,
