Lay Flat 01: REMAIN IN LIGHT Inaugural issue has arrived!

Jim Casper from Lens Culture tipped me off today about LAYFLAT:

“Just finished reading a new format photomagazine with loose photos (postcards) & separate bound text.”

Check it out!  From the website:

“Lay Flat is a new print publication devoted to promoting the best in contemporary fine art photography and writing on the medium. Each issue is assembled by Shane Lavalette in close collaboration with a co-curator. Photographers and writers from across the globe are invited to submit their work to be considered for future publications.”

“Included in the inaugural issue of Lay Flat are four essays, an interview and a poem, all accompanied by 20 unbound photographs from a selection of international photographers. This issue’s photographs were co-curated by Lay Flat‘s editor, Shane Lavalette, and Chicago-based photographer Karly Wildenhaus.”
