Issue 162 features previously unpublished work by some of photography's most masterful and remarkable artists, including Richard Misrach's Cancer Alley photographsa disturbing look at environmental destruction in the American south.
Also here are Sally Mann's stunning photographs of her daughter Jessie. These mostly previously unpublished images, depicting Jessie's transformation from child to adult, are accompanied by an interview in which she discusses being photographed throughout her life. Nick Waplington's fabricated website images provide an ironic look at the implications of the free flowing, often incendiary information that proliferates on the internet. Other features include Shooting Blindwork by a New York-based collective of visually impaired photographersand a dialogue between David Levi Strauss and painter/longtime political activist Leon Golub concerning his use of photographs for inspiration in his work.
