Modern Painters Magazine



The blog to go to to read good reviews of excellent art and/or photography magazines is the invaluable coincidences. However, I felt I needed to point out the new edition of slightly mis-named Modern Painters magazine. MP usually features an excellent mix of architecture, paintings, photography, and whatever else there is that can be called modern art. The current edition (Spring 2004) is almost entirely devoted to photography and, I think, anybody interested in contemporary photography might want to check it out. It easily beats all “real” photography magazines - where else can you find a photo magazine that’s not a glorified catalogue for photo gizmos that nobody needs (yet another slightly modified digital camera with some more useless features) but, instead, focusses on actual photography done by cutting-edge photographers?

Update (12 April): coincidences discusses Modern Painters in detail.
