Upcoming Publication: Black and White Magazine

I’m grateful to be able to announce a soon to be published portfolio in Black and White Magazine.  My work “Lost in the Water” was chosen for a portfolio merit award and will be published this summer.  For those who don’t know how such things work, in a portfolio competition, you submit one or more portfolios of as many images as the publication requests, grouped around a particular theme.  The interesting question for me has to do with what the editors actually end up choosing to publish.  It is almost never would I expect, reminding me once again just how subjective art really is.  But no matter, as I said, I’m grateful.  Here is my selection of a four favorites from the submission.



160719 - S. Natick - 11 Tmax 100


These are from a location that has become very special to me, the South Natick, Massachusetts Dam along the Charles River.  I was able to work there even though I was pretty ill at the time.  The River helped me a great deal and I’m also very grateful for that assistance as well.

If you want to see what the editors chose, you can find their take in Black and White Magazine (the U.S. publication), Issue 177, August 2017.  Alas, photography magazines can be hard to find but Barnes and Noble is probably a good bet.

    Congratulations, James. By the looks of the photographs you presented the honor is well deserved. You are right in stating that art is very subjective especially in B&W photography. I am a fan of the Black and White Magazine and appreciate their choices as I learn from the photographs and techniques in the fine articles in the magazine. Congrats again.

    • Thanks so much. Yes, it is a great magazine. Their reproductions are really excellent, real black and white inspiration. I also really appreciate their in depth pieces, history, etc. I just hope they can keep it going, that seems to be the challenge for hard copy photography these days.
