New issues of 100 Eyes and Ahorn Magazine

Both 100 Eyes and Ahorn Magazine have just published new issues. Great work in both.

100 Eyes / Upfront: Our Children -- Cover photo from The Secret Life of Children by Amanda Lucier

100 Eyes’ “Upfront: Our Children” ranges from Rebecca Drobis’ work documenting childhood on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana to Stephen Shames’ work getting children to school in Uganda. I was initially apprehensive about the subject matter–it’s hard to make photos of kids transcend cutesy-ness or overwrought emotional manipulation. Not all the essays or individual pictures presented in the issue work on that level, but much of it does.

Ahorn Magazine / Issue 2 -- Cover photo from The Family Dig by Ben Alper

Ahorn‘s more on the art side of photography than what we ordinarily mention here on dva, but I like the work nonetheless. Both Ben Alper’s “The Family Dig” and Nicola Kast’s “How Can We Be So Different” approach identity through a great mix of portraiture, details, and found morsels. The issue’s rounded out with text, including an interview with Andrea Diefenbach and “Fear and Photography: Opening a discussion on lost images” by Ian Aleksander Adams. I especially love Ahorn’s design. No flash, minimal clicking. Just pictures and text, easy to read and see.
