LensWork’s announcement

Filed under: Photography — Doug Stockdale @ 1:01 am

I have not seen anyone else mention this, but Brooks Jensen in the recent issue of LensWork (No. 75 Mar-April 2008) announced that this was the last issue of the magazine that will be available for purchase in bookstores. From here on out, you will obtain your copies of LensWork either by subscription or single issue purchase before the subscription issues are mailed out.

So if you have been a magazine rack buyer of LensWork and you like this publication, you will need to become a subscriber to continue your reading and viewing enjoyment.

Brooks cites the amount of waste in the retail distribution channels (70% of magazines on the rack do not get sold, although LensWork does better than that), which translates to big waste of our natural resources.

So it will be interesting to see if this change in publishing strategies will ensure the on-going life of this magazine. Perhaps the new workshop series that they are starting will help continue their momentum. As a LensWork alumni, I wish them well and continued success;- )

Best regards, Doug
