Sneak Peek: Lay Flat 02

Posted on January 26th, by mbenaim in Eye Candy. No Comments

_Our dear friends at Lay Flat, an incredible magazine about photography, are releasing their second edition titled Meta. The concept? We’ll just give it to you straight from the horse’s mouth “Meta brings together the works of contemporary photographers whose images are conceptually engaged with the history, process and conventions of the medium itself.” The roster of photographers is insane: Claudia Angelmaier, Semâ Bekirovic, Charles Benton, Walead Beshty, Lucas Blalock, Talia Chetrit, Anne Collier, Natalie Czech, Jessica Eaton, Roe Ethridge, Stephen Gill, Daniel Gordon, David Haxton, Matt Keegan, Elad Lassry, Katja Mater, Laurel Nakadate, Lisa Oppenheim, Torbjørn Rødland, Noel Rodo-Vankeulen, Joachim Schmid, Penelope Umbrico, Useful Photography, Charlie White, Ann Woo and Mark Wyse. There’s your google assignment for the week, no?

Editor Shane Lavalette was awesome enough to let us give you a sneak peek into some of the work featured in this issue. Once you are mesmerized, go pre-order yourself a copy (seriously, there are only like 2000, so get them while you can!) You can thank us later.

What's on the menu?

What's in this thing, you ask? Well, we've got images, and features, and interviews, and articles, and short bits, and long bits, video posts, sound posts, lists and series, the local, the worldly, the controversial, the inane, and sometimes, if you look closely, the not-fit-for-print (which, of course, we'll just print anyways). Mostly old stuff, and new stuff. You know... the usual.
