Color magazine

The first four issues of Color Magazine

The first four issues of Color Magazine

B&W magazine has finally released a sister magazine, COLOR. The premiere issue, out last April, included the first installment of an essay written by Carol McCusker (photo curator of MoPA) on the history of color photography. The following two issues have subsequent installments.

COLOR follows the layout and philosophy of B&W. Feature articles on prominent photographers, curators, collectors, and the current value of color photographs appears in every issue. Spotlight articles on emerging photographers are plentiful, and I find them helpful to see what the current trends are in the photo world.

I much appreciate the fact that like B&W, the magazine is 80% meat, and 20% fat. By that I mean that there is minimal advertising interfering with the beautiful articles.

I canceled my subscription to B&W years ago because although it is a fabulous publication, I didn’t find it relevant to what is going on in the world of photography today, and I’ve shot only color for many years. I am very happy to be back in the fold with COLOR.

*Update as of the June 2011 issue, COLOR has merged with B&W. Instead of scrapping COLOR, the decision was made to add it to B&W in a dual magazine. The first part is B&W, and the second, COLOR.

Tom Toldrian, the publisher, writes “While B&W maintained a strong presence in the market-place, COLOR was never able to establish itself in the current economic climate. Although COLOR had a steadily growing subscriber base, advertising sales didn’t meet our expectations”.
