Unless You Will

The second issue of Unless You Will, a relatively new online photographic journal, is now available for download. Amassing the work of Nicolas Hughes, Jonathan Blaustein, Daniel Freytag, Benjamin Norman and Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann, Issue 2 possesses some really nice work and a simple, yet sophisticated design. Their mission statement reads:

"Unless you will, curated and founded by Heidi Romano, is an online journal that showcases a vision within photo-based art. Our goal is to bring together a collection of notable photographers from around the world and present their work.

Sometimes a photo can evoke high feelings of emotion or nostalgia and in a roundabout way it becomes a means of expressing ourselves as photographers. UYW strives to showcase photographers who add layers of meaning and capture these feelings. Their images are a happiness measurement, they give us pleasure, rekindle a memory, or trigger other emotions of their own. Our aim is to showcase these talented artists without too many frills, who work with the notions of play, honesty and craftsmanship."
