Lensculture May Issue

I’ve just been looking at the latest issue of Lensculture, “an online magazine celebrating international contemporary photography, art, media, and world cultures“, and as usual it is worth a look, including some fine photography. (If you read this post some time in the future you will find this issue in the Lensculture archives as No 33)

There are quite a few things I’ve seen before, but even some of those have been revitalised – for example the pictures from a new and expanded edition of Christer Strömholm’s great Les Amies de Place Blanche, first published in 1983, and an expanded version of Robert Adams‘s Prairie from 1978 (which I thought I had bought then but can’t at the moment find.)  Other favourite projects covered in the issue include Chongqing: City of Ambition by Ferit Kuyas (surely one of the best if not the best of the many essays on the new China) and there are other familiar works such as Jocelyn Bain Hogg’s remarkable book, The Family and Simon Norfolk‘s Burke and Norfolk.

But there is other work new to me, some of which I found interesting and just the odd thing that failed to touch me. But overall this is a great read.
