GUP is raw and fresh
GUP presents a new issue and a refreshed layout and website.
GUP Magazine – Guide to Unique Photography – has always been on the forefront of creative development.
In GUP no. 44 it opens an investigation into the meaning of “raw” photography, one of those words that we all throw around assuming the meaning is clear, until we realise we’ve been talking about different things. Seemingly one of the highest compliments to be bestowed on a photographic series, “raw” starts at some notion of being uncompromised by manipulation – whether digital or human.
This issue features an interview with the elusive photographer Mike Brodie, who recently published his new monograph Tones of Dirt and Bone, which sounds pretty raw to me, and articles by Editor-at-Large Erik Vroons and Jim Reed. Additional photographers highlighted in the magazine include: Nadine Blanke, Asger Carlsen, Cyril Costilhes, Linelle Deunk, Jens Juul, Sofie Amalie Klougart, Stacy Kranitz, among others.
The new GUP features a new, sleeker design, also digitally, which accentuates both the photography and the words inside this issue.
