Utter Journal is a brand new photographic magazine which launched in spring 2019. The Journal is aimed at all practitioners who have a love of photography. It's not a magazine for photographers or about photographers, it's for anyone who sees with photographs and is willing to navigate the intricate pathways of narrative composition. We will be publishing three issues a year in March, July and November. This first ever issue focuses on the ancient town of Great Yarmouth and the nineteenth century photographer, P.H.Emerson.
Our latest issue has had a bumpy genesis, resulting in a heavily rescripted version, down from the original 132 pages to 20 pages. This came about due to an objection by the original printers over content and the police getting involved. It seems childhood is uncertain and Issue 2 is more of a statement about the levels of societal censorship than the subject of childhood itself. Although I took the decision not to print the original version of Childhood, I felt strongly that UtterBooks had a responsibility to artistic fredom.
