As 2012 draws to a close, it is customary to look back at the year that has passed and to the year ahead and reflect. In general I am a reflective person and it doesn’t take a date on the calendar to make me pause and think about my life and what is important. Read More
I love Christmas for many reasons. Somehow this year I missed a few of the traditions–no mince pies and no Christmas Pudding and I just couldn’t get into shopping for presents Read More
As a child, I dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer. Don’t laugh. It was a very short dream. I did however develop a love of attending the ballet when I lived in Winnipeg and had access to world-class performers like Evelyn Hart Read More
Why is this hard working freelance travel photographer relaxed and having fun? Surely he should be more concerned with getting his images out of his camera and on to his PhotoShelter website or submitted to his clients back in London? Read More
Today we are excited to release our third issue of Rear Curtain magazine. Wow. Three issues under our belt! We began with a hope to create a photography magazine dedicated to stories that connect us to one another and each time I feel we have stepped up to the plate and delivered. By sharing our lives and those of the people around us, we have revealed the common bonds that make us human and bring us together.
In this issue our focus is on family and community. Patrick Laroque lets us peek into his backyard where he spends time with his family while Ellie Ericson takes us on a journey to Italy to meet Hamid who has created a new family through his craft of mask making. Ilse Cornelis goes back in time to tell the history of Min Naing’s family and how they came to be umbrella makers in Myanmar. Yalda Pashai braves the world of motorcycle gangs and uncovers the bond of community we might easily overlook. And of course we welcome back Mark Krajnak who is part of our family at RC with his regular Noir post. This month it’s “Switchback”.
The essay comes courtesy of photographer and author Michael Freeman. If you are interested in learning how to successfully structure your photo story, Michael discusses the key elements which are an excerpt from his latest book “The Photographer’s Story“. He also shares an edited version of his story “The Tea Horse Road: China’s Ancient Trade Road to Tibet.”
As we are approaching the holiday season, we are very pleased to showcase Ed Brydon’s work, both on the cover and inside. In many ways each issue is a celebration for us at Rear Curtain. Matt, Stuart and Ray work very hard to pull everything together and I have to say thank you to them for all the big and small things they do around the “office”. I can tell you that there wouldn’t be an Issue 3 without them
