Each issue of the bi-annual art photography magazine, Aint-Bad, focuses on a specific theme or cultural observation. The subject of their latest issue: the selfie! As they’re quick to note: “Some surprising things happen when you put out a bold, seemingly dangerous, call for selfie submissions…” Click below for a sneak peak at Aint-Bad’s provocative Self-ie issue!
For the third issue of Print Isn’t Dead, People of Print have teamed up with Hewlett-Packard to do something pretty original! Readers can personalise the cover of the magazine, up to 250 characters.

TIME has selected ten images, from thousands, that they felt were the most influential this year. Warning: some of the images are graphic. You can see their full list, and read about each image in greater detail here.
I meant to post about Aint-Bad Magazine’s eighth issue, “The American South”, awhile ago. Their website is one of my favourite resources for contemporary photography, and their printed issues are beautifully curated. The magazine is based in Savannah, Georgia, and this issue focuses on photos and photo-essays related to re-defining The American South.
There are still copies of this issue left, if you’re interested head over here. Have a look several of the spreads from inside this issue below.
In December, veteran photojournalist David Guttenfelder was selected as TIME’s pick for Instagram photographer of the year. He has won the World Press Photo award seven times, and was one of the first foreign photographers to be allowed to document North Korea.
Guttenfelder commented that North Korea “is not the kind of place where you can make what photojournalists call good pictures very easily”. All of his photos were shot with a government minder looking over his shoulder.
I’ve included a small selection of his images below. I don’t know if North Korea has ever been captured this way before.
Big congratulations to Campbell and company, a decade is a massive accomplishment. Their magazine was one of my biggest influences when I started Booooooom and when readers ask me about other sites to check out Monster Children is still one of the first I mention.
