I’m no fortune teller, but I know a cult magazine when I see one, and this one’s got a foretold Destiny with a capital D. Accent magazine’s confident fourth issue is another slap-in-the-face reminder that they’re here, they’re fierce and they’re not going anywhere. In no other online photography publication do you find the same brutal level of dedication to finding a story and telling it with a punch.
The images and accompanying text in this particular issue is at once hard to read and utterly magnetic, miles ahead of a lot of photographic journals who tend to go with the notion that a photo of vomit means it’s edgy and real. Refreshingly, when editors Lucy Nurnberg and Lydia Garnett say that the magazine is “a global celebration of lives lived outside the ordinary” they really, really mean it, and the excellent content wholeheartedly backs it up.
