The Plant Journal, one of The BJP’s magazine picks of 2012
Welcome to the first of a regular feature squeezing 7 Days of image news into one minute. A fast briefing of this week’s image stories from around the web and this week we’re talking a look back at the reviews of 2012
This week it’s all about lists. The British Journal of Photography’s Best New Magazines of 2012 that shows photography is alive and well, and driving some marvellously niche publications – The Plant Journal anyone? Dazed Digital’s Photography editor’s 2012 highlights include interviews with Juergen Teller, Ellen von Unwerth and a look at an indie-magazine launch, The Gourmand with its image-rich, alternative take on Food culture.
American Photo’s Books of The Year is a bank-account-busting list of 60 books including Classroom Portraits by Julian Germain, Tim Walker’s Storyteller, and Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective – all featured on IMSO this year.
Topping PDN’s most popular news story of 2012 was the ongoing legal saga of Shepard Fairey’s Obama/Hope poster which took an odd turn. FastCompany deliver their judgement on the 16 Best Photoessays of 2012, which includes awe-inspiring Science photos, abandoned motel pools, and Nadav Kander’s Yangtze: The Long River. While Business Insider have some fun and provocation in their 13 Things That Went Obsolete In 2012, including Hard-Drives and small-screened smartphones. Our prediction for 2013 is that articles with numbers in the headline will not become obsolete. Like 7 Days: One Minute!
