Farewell to JPG Magazine

Yesterday I was sad to read that JPG Magazine is shutting down this month. I always looked forward to each new issue full of colorful, creative, less-is-more photos. Pretty much all the images were available online, but it's not the same as seeing them in print. I got my first issue at the PhotoShelter Photography 2.0 event in New York in 2007.

Similar photography can still be seen on sites like Lomography and Flickr, but it was nice to see it collected into one place in print six times each year.

I was able to snag the last issue off of the shelves today. I'm wondering if there's still another issue in the pipeline that will come out. We'll see.
