1000 Words Photography Magazine #9

We are delighted to announce that the Autumn issue of 1000 Words “Transformation” is now online. To view it please go to

We start off this issue with Curator of photography at Tate Simon Baker’s review of Double Bind, an extraordinary installation of a new body of work from Leigh Ledare as seen at Les Rencontres d’Arles, France this summer. There is also an interview with Andrew Bruce, a recent graduate from the University of Creative Arts in Farnham, and an essay on another exciting talent to emerge from the UK in the last few years, Melinda Gibson. Louise Clements writes about Berlin-based photographer Isabelle Graeff, and The Telegraph’s Photography critic-cum-picture editor Lucy Davies offers her thoughts on The Flesh and The Spirit, the latest Sally Mann photobook which will be published by Aperture in November. Finally, 1000 Words Deputy editor Michael Grieve reviews Trevor Paglen’s first photographic monograph, Invisible: Covert Operations and Classified Landscapes, also from Aperture.

In the books section, we cover Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids and Coming Up For Air by Stephen Gill. The range of photographers in this issue is eclectic and amazing. At a time when photography is becoming increasingly vapid and predictable, 1000 Words hopes to provide some precious insight in to the best work that is being produced today.

As always, thanks to all the artists, writers and advertisers, and we would like to express our deep gratitude to Santiago Taccetti of CCCH Creative Studio, Barcelona for his wonderful design work on the magazine.

Many thanks and best wishes,
