New Statesman photo-reportage
Good to see some solid photo-reportage in a weekly news magazine. This week’s summer double issue of the New Statesman features this impressive photo set selected from an exhibition at Les Rencontres d’Arles called ‘Transition’. The eight-page story has been edited by the magazines photography editor Rebecca McClelland and includes work by eight photographers. The edit was made from a broader set of work commissioned by David Goldblatt and the Market Photoworkshop examining the political landscape of South Africa.
