Soura featurePosted: August 18, 2007
They made a swanky intro page to my feature.
The magazine is a bit larger than my scanner, so apologies for the gaps in the middle.
It is still quite surreal to hold the magazine in my hands and see my photos in it.
I had to omit a spread between here. It's not anything you haven't seen before though. Just two single photos in the spread. I just love how they made the layout of the pages as well. It's quite incredible to see my photos this size, in a real magazine! :)
They kindly asked me to provide a self portrait with the feature. I shot one near midnight one week night with one of my Polaroid land cameras. I quite like how it turned out considering it was quite last minute.
Soura also asked me to tell a little bit about myself, my approach to photography and basically what street photography means to me. I wrote some thoughts down thinking it will get heavily edited, but to my surprise the whole text accompanied the photographs in the feature. I'm very grateful to my great friend René who was very patient with me and helped me get my thoughts straight. He provided me with a firm editorial hand and great insights of his own for my text. Without him I'd probably come across really ditzy! :D
I'm also very thankful for the interest and support Soura magazine has provided me in my photography. Special thanks goes to the editor in chief Mariam who was a great pleasure to deal with and who sent me two copies of the magazine to share with my family, too. And of course a big thanks to VOX for providing such a great and easy-to-use platform for me to be able to share my London and photographs with you all.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend, there are more photos to come soon! ;-)
