Welcome to the third issue of VIEW.
We have been quite busy researching and developing this issue, as well as learning from our experience of becoming publishers/curators vs. our usual roles as interactive designers. Running a company, dealing with various projects and then selecting images for the next issue – let me just say it’s a handful! But we love the experience and vow to make it better as we progress.
In this issue we feature a mix of beautiful street photography from South America, through the almost-abandoned landscapes in The Netherlands and the USA. We “visit” Greece and the island of Salt Cay as witnesses to economic issues, and explore the work of a Hudson Valley artist creating new imagery by embroidering on top of old photographs.
A client of ours once told us that upon finding our website she felt she “found an island of calm away from all the noise of the web”. I suppose that in a way I see this magazine as such an island – a respite from the more conventional, typical or commercial photography out there and I hope you feel the same when you explore this issue’s photographers and artists, with their evident passion for the visual language.
Enjoy and let us know what you think. And I thank you in your help supporting these photographers and their art through additional exposure, so feel free to share what you like on your social networks.
