Blow offers some seriously good photography, and the decision to go with a large scale publication has been a good one, with the resulting magazine showing off the featured images incredibly well. It is also fascinating to read the little accompaniments to each collection that explains both why the photographer chose to photograph what they did, what it means to them and the important aspects of their work such as lighting. If this publication had simply been that then we would have been happily satisfied.
But no, they had to go one better and make it something more. The simple but clever binding system means that each leaf of the magazine can be removed at will, meaning that if you take a fancy to any particular photographs – and there were more than a few that caught out eye in the five issues there have been so far. It is not necessarily a world changing idea – after all, it makes sense that people will want to use the images in the magazine they have bought – and we are surprised that there aren’t more like it out there. Blow represents a breath of fresh air, and you know what, the walls of the offices here at Newsstand could do with a splash of life from a few lovely photographs… NB
