In/Sights: Self-Portraits by Women, came up in (if I recall) a thread on Twitter about female photographers and under-representation in Photoland.* Published in 1978, the year I was born, In/Sights is a collection of 125 photographs from 66 photographers, selected from over 4000 submissions, solicited, culled, put together, and Introduced by Joyce Tenneson Cohen, with […]
Long time, no review, huh. Apologies. I’ve been busy and lazy, in roughly equal measure. Anyway. Jason Fulford‘s Contains: 3 Books is exactly what it says it is.

I’m something of a Lewis Bush fan. You might remember April 2018, when I unboxed and reviewed a handful of his books and zines that I received as part of my Kickstartering of his Shadows of the State book. So when he put out a new version, larger and more thorough version of his Metropole zine, I jumped […]
