 Black & White

Just recently discovered a new magazine, at least new to me. It's called Black & White and it's published out of California. Great images, great content, great paper quality, more than 125 pages per issue and it arrives shipped in a plastic bag to help reduce any damage in transit via the USPS.

Almost always there is some kind of photo contest sponsored by the magazine. I've submitted photos for their "Single Image" contest, within the landscape category, and I'm in the process of submitting more for their "Vintage Image" contest; photos taken prior to 1980. Both of these contests are for publication in 2021 with winners being notified by December of this year. I trust I may have a chance since they expressed an interest in my photos for the "Single Image" event. We'll see.

Black & White magazine is published 6 times per for a rate of $35/year. Well worth it for me since I'm exclusively a B&W film photographer. However they have articles/photos from the digital world as well. My choice of film is medium format and my camera is a Mamiya 645 yet the magazine has plenty of room for articles/photos on pin hole cameras and plastic Holgas. Pretty cool! 

Let me know what you think if you have or will have access to the Black & White magazine. I'd be interested in your comments one way or the other.

Thanks - Hank
