The long-awaited fourth edition of the new-look Analogue journal has been dropping through members’ mail boxes this week, with a handsome cover image from Owen Andrew taken with his Zero Image 45. The Pinhole cover image forms part of this issue’s specialist topic; pinhole photography. Inside features some beautiful pinhole images from Mark Snowdon ARPS and Roger Harrison, along with a thorough guide to the practice from Owen Andrew, featuring tips, online resources and examples of different pinhole cameras available.
The issue also explores other photography subjects, from a look inside the darkroom and camera bag of Kay Reeve FRPS, an interesting article on darkroom retouching from Alan Meeks LRPS, a brief exploration of Donald Richards’ series of abstract photographs of the statues of Henry Moore and a deep-dive into the photographic journey of Dr Alan Hodgson ASIS Hon FRPS. There’s also an inspiring piece on Kay Reeve’s hybrid photography and editor Charles Binns recaps last year’s inaugural members exhibition (the catalogue of which is included as a bonus with this issue) - imploring members to think ahead to their own submissions to the next instalment, due later this year. Book reviews, members discounts at Analogue Wonderland and all the information you need to contribute your own images, articles or comments, all make up the rest of this latest issue.
Members will also be please to hear that print copies of the journal are now being expanded to distribute to members in Europe as well as the United Kingdom. For international members, and those wishing to read the journal digitally, you can pursue this latest issue at the Royal Photographic Society’s issuu page here.
