Just got the latest edition of PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE. It's celebrating it's 50th edition. It's a survey of (in their opinion) the top 50 photographers currently working in the UK. I think on the whole it's a pretty fair assessment. There is the usual suspects, a couple of people who I think are missing and a couple that......well they must be well connected is all I can say.
On the whole worth buying. A good stock take of British photography at the end of the decade. Magma on Oldham street, Manchester had a couple of copies left or you can buy it from the PORTFOLIO site.
