It was a wonderful surprise yesterday when collecting a book I ordered via the internet at the Post Office yesterday. The lady at the counter informed there was not only one parcel to collect, but that another parcel had just arrived for me (you just got to love a small village Post Office). The second parcel was my copy of Fine Art Photo Magazine, with a portfolio feature included of my work.
It is always an honour to see ones work in print and for me, this was a very special gift :)
I was contacted by the publisher and editor-in-chief, Rudolf Hillebrand, some months ago about doing a portfolio feature in an upcoming issue. Not only was I impressed with Rudolf’s kind messages and his professionalism, but the magazine itself is of such absolutely beautiful quality.
The magazine is published twice a year in April and October in a lavish layout, with a volume of 148 pages. The focus is on the presentation of fine art photographers in the form of generous portfolio features, refraining nearly completely from technical articles and adverts. Each issue presents an international selection of ten to twelve photographers of widely varying styles introduced by text in German and English.
