Issue 9: Street

Includes Street, 9 to 5, and Elegance.
April—May 2007

Street photography is about documenting your world. In our Street theme you'll find personal reviews of street shooting equipment, the East Bay Rats photo essay by Lane Hartwell, and insights about how to shoot street from experts and talented amateurs alike.

You'll also find our Elegance theme which includes some simply stunning moments of everyday beauty. And this issue includes our 9 to 5 theme. Much of our lives is taken up by work, so we asked for portraits of people on the job. The results provide an amazing glimpse into other people's lives, and put a whole new spin on the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

The 9 to 5 theme also includes Underbunny's photo essay, "The Dismal Trade," a look behind the doors of the funeral home. We also sat down with a couple of professional photographers, Nick Nichols and Jonathan Taylor, to find out what it's like to shoot for a living. Their answers may surprise you.

A special thanks to Jewelboxing, Dyna-lite, Flickr, Panasonic, SuicideGirls, Lensbabies, and Sigma, for making this issue possible!
