THE TRUTH MAGAZINE IS NOT ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY, RELIGION, POLITICS, CELEBRITIES, SPORTS, FACTS, FASHION OR FICTION.

“WE ALL KNOW THAT ART IS NOT TRUTH. ART IS A LIE THAT MAKES US REALISE TRUTH, AT LEAST THE TRUTH THAT IS GIVEN US TO UNDERSTAND. THE ARTIST MUST KNOW THE MANNER WHEREBY TO CONVINCE OTHERS OF THE TURTHFULNESS OF HIS LIES.”

PICASSO , 1923

Interesting idea and concept. I personally like the idea of a magazine that shows the type of photography that I like and gives an avenue for fellow street photographers to get their work in print.  Should be interesting….I think I’ll buy mine today!

” “I am actually a reluctant publisher. I consider myself a photographer first and foremost,” says Turpin. “But I started Nick Turpin Publishing because I felt very frustrated I couldn’t buy the kind of photography I most admired – magazines rarely featured street photography and the last major street photography book, Bystander, was published in 1994″ “

I stumbled upon this web site today.  It’s by Nick Turpin who is a phenomenol street photographer.  He has started a quarterly street photography publication…what a great idea.  It also has link’s to In Public’s 10th year anniversary book, which looks absolutely stunning.  here are the links:

Trying to get myself back into the flow on a Monday morning.  A combination of a strong cup of coffee, Radiohead and Trent Parke’s beautiful photos from Dreamlife should do the trick.

Trent’s portfolio photos can be found on Magnum’s website.  If you’ve been living in a cave and haven’t seen them, it’s well worth a look.

Some of the greatest street photographers of all time have come or have gone to New York city. Markus Hartel is no exception to the rule. If you have some time have a look at his blog. Some of his black and white work is inspirational

Here at five streets we will be honoring some of the greats of street photography by holding a contest each month selecting the five best street photos based on creating new images with that photographers technique in mind. The goal is not to duplicate the images of the greats but to use their ideas and techniques to develop our own.

Where to start???  Who better to start with than Robert Frank?  As an “outsider”  Frank’s view of America in his book “The Americans has had a lasting influence on street photography with it’s symbolism, blurred figures, and choice of framing and camera angles.

See the contest page for entry requirements.
