Nancy McCrary and all the good folks at South x Southeast Photo Magazine (SxSE) have brought us two recent issues -- Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 -- that give us much fine work to contemplate in this season when, as the song goes, this is the time for man and beast to stand and watch the seasons turn.
The Fall 2012 issue contains the results of SxSE's first Holiday Contest, as well as work from SlowExposures Tenth Anniversary show, held back in September. This is well-earned notice for the folks at SlowExposures who need and deserve our thanks and appreciation for all they have done to bring the photography world's attention to the rural SouthThe Winter 2013 issue brings us the work of seven photographers who bring our attention nature in all the ways a camera can record it, from close-ups of nature's fine details to landscapes that give us the grand view of it all.
Here there are also images that remind us in this season of winter of our own part in the cycles of nature, complicated though they may be (see image above, by Peter Essick, Commuting with Nature).
Images here also remind us of our own mortality, of the fact that as Ash Wednesday approaches, we are dust and to dust we shall return.
In addition, in both issues there are all the regular features, including museum and gallery reviews (here Rebecka Jacob's Charleston Gallery and Lumiere in Atlanta), book reviews, videos, and all the rest of the things we have come to expect of SxSE, bringing us the photography of the Southeast, up close, in depth, and and all worthy of our attention.
Congratulations are also in order, since SxSE has been named among the “Best of 2012” by Le Journal de la Photographie. A richly deserved honor!
