Issue 11 | Summer 2021

Issue 11 is both the same and a bit different than issues 1-10—it has the same balance of portfolios, gear, and techniques, but a different gender balance. Instead of the five men to one woman ratio we have usually had, we have a “female focus” this time around, five women and one man. Did you know that about 50% of the world’s professional photographers are women? And they are doing amazing work on film. Our cover artist, Susan Burnstine, is one great example, as is Oscar®-winner Zana Briski, and there are many others to enjoy in this issue. We also have articles about the Pentacon Six, making your own emulsion, and a test of new retro lenses from Meyer-Görlitz.
