Excerpt Magazine is a free quarterly online at www.excerptmagazine.com Excerpt Magazine is centred on photo-based practice and challenges the archetypal magazine structure by constructing new formats.
Issue 2 is now online, in this special issue 30 people have responded to the cover image by Izabela Pluta with an image or moving image of their own. Issue 2 is visual pressed against visual, to get us closer to what others see in an image. This has created an exhibition within a magazine and a discussion written with pictures.
Excerpt Magazine’s first issue garnered critical praise and 4000 readers. Editor Amy Marjoram says, “We approach each issue as a new creative challenge and wanted to start 2012 with this incredible selection of images that resonate together before returning to a mixed format for the rest of the year.” She adds, “With Issue 2, through a wordless premise, the magazine inhabits the very openness that keeps us looking at and taking images.”
