As if having the redesigned Aperture magazine promoting their discipline wasn’t enough of a thrill, photographers the world over can now relax, safe in the knowledge they’re being thoroughly represented by two beautifully-designed, tastefully-curated magazines (sure there’s more, but that doesn’t fit the angle of my introduction). Now in its fifth edition, Aint-Bad magazine takes a different thematic approach for each issue and cherrypicks some of the finest young practitioners into a luxurious showcase.
Issue five is dubbed Surface and explores images that have been created with aesthetics in mind, allowing the viewer to enjoy the simple beauty of their composition instead of worrying about what hidden meanings lurk beneath. And with features on Anthony Gerace, Daniel Gordon and Clayton Cotterell, Aint-Bad will ensure your aesthetic requirements are met.
