An all-analogue photography magazine with zero retouching? Yes please

I’m all for a glossy mag that’s chock-a-block with larger-than-life studio shots of models in surreal situations (I’m looking at you, Annie Leibovitz), but there’s a raw beauty to analogue photographs that haven’t been retouched, and this is what PYLOT magazine is all about.
Created by editor-in-chief Max Barnett and staffed by a group of image-makers and writers who seem to have come across each other in the most organic of ways, the publication is biannual and themed, with this issue dedicated to Family. It communicates the concept through a photo-series about a pair of twins, Esme Anderson’s article dedicated to her father, established photographer Peter Anderson, fashion in family portraits, and a series about one isolated cross-dressing man and his caravan – a diverse and enchanting spread. It’s still very young, but for a publication to dedicate such time and space to analogue photography is an exciting thing.
