Issue 4: No Theme

December 2005

To celebrate the first year of JPG Magazine, we cast off our usual theme and invited submissions on any topic. Just send us your favorite shot of 2005, we said. But the funny thing is, themes emerged anyway: everything from water to family to youth. But the overall theme seemed to be memory. Whether it's remembering the fallen or just marking time, photography is all about remembering. Why else do we click the shutter than to say, this is a thing I will not forget?

For this issue's interview, we decided to talk to Youngna Park and Zach Klein about their photographic and social experiment, Candy Cane for Your Portrait. Their experience shows that when you're making memories, you're rarely alone.

The early issues of JPG (issues 1 through 6) are available in print exclusively through Lulu.

We're always looking for awesome sponsorship opportunities. Find out how you can be part of the JPG experience!
