Volume 26 of Lens Culture is online now. As always, it’s filled with a wonderful and eclectic mix of contemporary photography from around the globe.
Photographers whose work appears in this new issue include:
Pierre Torset, Charlie Ferguson, Tamas Paczai, Allen Ginsberg, Lennart Nilsson, Vee Speers, Andrzej Mitura, Tony Ray-Jones, Massimiliano Clausi, Judit M. Horvath and Gyorgy Stalter, Jim Vecchi, Matt Lutton, Carolle Benitah, Michael Christopher Brown, Margaret M. de Lange, Franco Pagetti, Lucie and Simon, Marcos Lopez, Antonio Martinez, Annie Leibovitz, and Joel-Peter Witkin.
Plus you can enjoy a high-resolution slideshow of 40 preview picks from the Rencontres d’Arles 2010 photo festival in France.
And there’s a magazine inside the magazine, so to speak: VII The Magazine includes weekly updates of multimedia presentations and in-depth personal views of current events through the eyes of photojournalists.
This 26th issue is perhaps our largest edition in six years. Plus, every article, audio and video interview, slideshow, critical essay and book review from the previous 25 issues is still available in Lens Culture’s online archives. There’s lots of great stuff to discover!
Many of the new talents featured in this issue were discovered at portfolio reviews in Houston, Krakow, Budapest, Toronto, and Stockholm over the past four months, as well as through direct submissions from international photographers to Lens Culture. We’re also featuring some of the work we discovered while judging the Anthropographia competition about human rights and photography.
And last, but not least, we’re thrilled that photographers from 27 countries have already registered to participate in our first portfolio review event in Paris. Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010 will take place November 15-17, 2010. A stellar group of 40-plus photography experts from around the world will meet one-on-one with photographers over the three days of the event. If you’d like to take part, we encourage you to sign up soon, since places are limited.
