see, a quarterly journal published by The Friends of Photography, presents striking photography and fine writing that explore the impact of lens-based images on contemporary culture.
see places the medium of photography within the broad discourse of visual culture, including art, advertising, mass media, and literature. Unlike conventional photography-related journals, see lets photographers speak for themselves about their work and gives writers the freedom to address visual issues across a broad spectrum of concerns. Photographs ranging from contemporary to historical, as well as images from lens-based media amd new electronic environments, are featured in tandem with fiction, poetry, essays, and critical commentary that respond to our image-dominated surroundings.
In addition to beautifully reproduced portfolios of photographs and insightful, provocative writings, each volume of see includes a section of artist's pages, reviews of current exhibitions, books, and multimedia titles; and regular columns that address the formative and functional aspects of visual culture.
