Utter Journal is a new photographic publication, launched in spring 2019, and 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. They are photographic sketchbooks, and I will be publishing three issues a year in April, July and December.
Issue 1 focuses on the ancient town of Great Yarmouth and the nineteenth century photographer, P.H.Emerson.
Issue 2 had a bumpy genesis, resulting in a heavily rescripted version of childhood. In the end it became more of a statement about the levels of societal censorship than the subject of childhood itself. Issue 3 takes a slant look at war, and the militarisation of perception, through a collection of messaging data. Issue 4 is about the space and place called garden. Issue 5 looks at object as obsolete form in an age of minimalist conformity.
