American Illustrated Magazine
November 1905-October 1906 (Volumes 61-62)

American Illustrated Magazine does not explain itself. It gets right on with the story. Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, on soft, aromatic paper. Pleasantly antiquated. And illustrated of course, with photographs, like a series of bird portraits or a crocodile hunt, or with drawings that step out in front of what they were meant to describe. As if they told their own story all along.

Occupations

What color is your collar? Do you even have a shirt on your back? What does work really mean? Is it ever any good?

Our Occupations picture folders – divided by Blue or White, Collar of course – may not answer these or any other questions, but they’re worth a look.

Album

Album

February 1970-January 1971
(12 issues; missing #4 & #8)

Album was published in London from 1970 to 1971. Its editor was Bill Jay.

It was a magazine of photography’s incursions.

Every page is black and white. No ornament, austere blocks of text. The effect is like drawing a curtain, or dimming the lights in a theater, only without the direction dictated by film, leaving you free to wander.

There are no advertisements.

Its concern was the actuality of practice. Old essays followed new talents in a critical space where “art photography” was as ludicrous a term as “art painting,” and what appears easy and available as a technology is, like any artistic practice, much more fugitive and essential.
