New in JPG Magazine
Just a thought from 4 December 2005 about , , .

Heather and I just put the finishing touches on some great new stuff for JPG Magazine.

JPG Magazine Issue 4

JPG Magazine Issue 4: No Theme is now available! For the final issue of our first year, we decided to take a break from the usual theme. We just asked for your best photos of 2005. And we got 'em!

Inside issue 4 you'll find 35 amazing photographs, an interview with Youngna Park and Zach Klein about their "Candy Cane for Your Portrait" project, and a set of brilliant lomos by featured photographer, Kevin Meredith.

JPG Magazine Issue 5

We've also announced the theme for Issue 5: Photography is Not a Crime. In a post 9/11 age of paranoia and suspicion, public photography has become threatening, even criminal. And we here at JPG are sick of it.

For Issue 5, we're asking you to go out in public and take photos. Insist on your rights as a photographer. Shoot where people tell you not to. And, of course, send the best one to us. Submissions are open now until January 15, 2006.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “New in JPG Magazine” that I wrote on 4 December 2005.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Chawazek 2006” on 1 December 2005. After this, I wrote “A Very Special Christmas Post” on 18 December 2005.
