SOURCE is changing. For nine months we have been working on a redesign of the magazine that will be published for the first time in December. To mark its redesign we will be holding a series of launches across the UK and Ireland. As well as unveiling the new magazine we will be staging a photography quiz pitching photographers against curators and critics. Please join us in Belfast, Dublin, London, Cardiff and Glasgow on the dates below.
SOURCE has been published since 1992. In that time it has appeared in three designs: from 1992 to 1997 it was A4 portrait format and primarily in black and white, from 1998 to 2006 it was landscape format and in full colour and since 2006 it has been a slightly off-square format. The content of the early issues of the magazine included news, reviews and portfolios of photographs. These have remained a mainstay but as the magazine has increased in page count we have added feature articles, specialist columns and sections covering book publishing and self-published books.
In renewing the design of SOURCE we have sought to make a magazine that is rooted in the history of photographic publishing while also being open to the world. We have worked with Rob van Hoesel studio, who we knew from their publishing wing the Eriskay Connection, to develop the new magazine. As well as the new shape and design you will find additional columns about fashion, the afterlife of photographic objects and conversations with photographers, of all varieties, about their experience of the world. We maintain our commitment to discovering new photography projects, reviewing exhibitions and books and critiquing anything else that defines the evolving photographic culture.
