AIN'T BAD Magazine was started in the South, a creation of some enterprising folks who met at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
AIN'T BAD covers the world of photography, but the editors remember their Southern roots not only in the name of the publication but also by featuring Southern photographers in significant numbers in their coverage.
They also suggest their Southern heritage in the way questions of home, family, and cultural identity seem to be ongoing interests in the interviews with photographers that enrich their galleries of images.
Recent examples include the very insightful interview just up with Virginia-based photographer Matt Eich (see image above), which you can find here.
Other Southern photographers who have recently displayed their work in AIN'T BAD include the following:
Charleston-based photographer Abby Murphy (see image above).
Savannah-based photographer Parker Stuart (see image above).
Florida-based photographer William Douglas (see image above).
Durham, NC - based photographer Sarah Elizabeth Borst (see image above).
Savannah-based photographer Carson Sanders (see image above).
Durham, NC-based photographer Aaron Canipe (see image above).
Vermont-based (but educated at SCAD) photographer Kory Kingsley (see image above).
More Southern photographers to come, I am sure, from the folks at AIN'T BAD, which is of course a hell of a lot better than that.
