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

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‘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.
