Issue 12: Fashion

Includes Fashion, Creative License, and Family.
October—November 2007

We are very lucky to have Alison Kelly as the guest editor for our Fashion issue. Alison is well-known for her involvement in Project Runway, a TV series which shares the same spirit of meritocracy with JPG. Her DIY sensibilities and avant-garde style made her a natural choice for editor of this theme. The Fashion theme also has an interview with shock photographer Clayton Cubitt, tips on getting started in fashion photography from a Condé Nast veteran, and unexpected fashion at the racetracks documented in Dina Goldstein's "Trackrecord."

Creative License is a theme that recasts photography as design. Grant Hamilton's photo essay "Mnml," containing polaroid studies of color and minimalism, perfectly highlights this growing genre of photography. Lisa Rienermann shares her photographic alphabet, with the letters A-Z formed by looking up at the Barcelona sky, and Nick Fancher teachs you how to paint with light while doing night photography.

Our last Issue 12 theme, Family, goes a more intimate route, and explores your most complicated relationships. Charles Rushton shares his "Portraits of Fathers" photo essay.

A special thanks to Adobe®, Hallmark Institute of Photography, New York Institute of Photography, Adobe®, Photo District News, Photoworks San Francisco, Dyna-lite, and Lensbabies, for making this issue possible!
