IMAGE USED AS STARTING POINT FOR THE EXCERPT EXHIBITION (KEEP READING TO FIND OUT MORE)
WELCOME Our cover artist Lucas Blalock takes photographs that are familiar within their unfamiliarity. Experiencing photographic déjà vu, there is a sense you have seen it before or should have seen it before yet your expectations aren’t quite aligning. Blalock deftly toys with the idea of standard images of predictable objects and comes up with photographs you are not quite ready for that trigger a subtle double-take.
Excerpt Magazine concentrates on short pieces of text and images that together form a collection of thoughtful insights and exchanges around photo-based practice. As an independent publication we have been overwhelmed by all the support we have received. So many people have helped us realise our ambition, to make a magazine that is as creative in its self as in its contents.
Blalock seemed the perfect artist to invite for the cover of Excerpt Issue 1 and his image figure with blanket (arms raised), 2010 became the image ten people responded to visually within the first issue. Creating a domino effect of intrigue, we hope you will find this section as compelling as we do.
We hope you enjoy the launch issue of Excerpt Magazine.
