Issue 21 | Winter 2023
Issue 21 is a blockbuster! Iconic cover artist Steve McCurry shares stories behind-the-scenes of his images in a 10-page portfolio. We tested not 1, not 2, but 3 new color films, including HARMAN’s Phoenix. We interviewed Director of Photography Robbie Ryan about using motion picture Ektachrome specially produced by Kodak for Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film, Poor Things, which looks to be an Oscar front-runner for 2024.
On the gear side of things, we have a new Instax back for Hasselblad, and an in-depth look at Rokkor lenses. There’s an inspiring, hands-on article about EBS (Exposing Both Sides) photography, and an inside look at how to organize a complex project using the example of Marwan El Mozayen’s Super Constellation photoshoot.
We also celebrate film photography mainstay JOBO’s centennial, and share Bruce Barnbaum’s thoughts about photographic projects, including his own latest book, available through Kickstarter here. And in addition to Steve McCurry, we have five more wonderful portfolios from around the world!
