Gomma Magazine - Issue 2 - Launch
By gomma, 17 Mar 2006
Gomma Magazine is proud to announce the launch of the second issue in March 2006 throughout Europe and the USA. 'Gomma Magazine, Issue Two' presents an exciting mixture of new photographic talents and renowned photographers in a newer, sleeker and more elegant format. Gomma's layout has been changed and improved to give the viewer a more rewarding experience.
With 25 photographers' portfolios, a 48-page section entirely dedicated to B/W and a showcase of promising talents, Gomma Magazine Issue Two remains 100% photographic and without advertising. Daido Moryama, Stephen Gill, Michelle Sank and Hiroshi Watanabe are just some of the names featured in this issue alongside exclusive interviews with Antoine D'Agata and controversial Russian photographer Nikolay Bakharev.
Particular attention is given to emerging international talents, such as the fresh and explicit Japanese artist Tetsu Tominari, the most promising Italian photographer Alessandro Digiampietro, (capturing slices of Italian reality reminiscent of early Wolfgan Tillmann's work) and interesting reportages by Ami Vitale and Timothy Fedeck from the USA. Gomma Magazine Issue Two will be available in selected libraries and bookshops throughout the UK and Europe from March 2006 at a cover price of £10 (GBP) and €10 (Europe) and is distributed by Comag Specialist.
Gomma Magazine is an independent magazine created by a team of professional photographers and visual artists based mainly in London. The team launched the first Gomma Magazine in 2005 taking inspiration from Provoke Magazine and Permanent Food. They wanted to generate a new space, entirely dedicated to photography and without the use of text and advertising. "Strangely fluid in a disjointed kind of way. A parody of situations which are humorous and tragic all at once", said Karen Harvey from Total Image Nation describing the first issue. The aim is to promote photography as a powerful tool to represent the world we live in.
"Gomma is a photographic journey to chew with your eyes" says Editor Luca Desienna. Gomma's homepage, www.gommamag.com, has become an important reference, not only for the photographic world, but also for the visual arts and the design community. It attracts on average 30,000 visitors per month.
