  1. I keep wondering why we all need so much space. Maybe we don’t edit our pics well enough.

  2. Lenswork is based out of Anacortes, Wa (not Canada) as far as the publishing is concerned. The founder/partner I believe operates a gallery in La Conner, Wa. Of note is the local artists (painters, watercolor,etc.) he exhibits as well as sculpture, not just photography. La Conner is known as home base to the writer Tom Robbins, (“Even Cowgirls Get the Blues”. It is a former “artist commune” whereupon the “drop outs” bought back in to the “establishment” and started selling their work in the local galleries to “Microsoft Yuppies / Dinks” that visited on the weekends while touring the tulip fields and eating sea food on the La Conner riverfront. Lenswork is a high quality “magazine” in the spirit of “Look Magazine” ala Magnum photo. You should definitely check it out. I recommend the print version over the digital version only because of the quality of the paper used and the “true blacks” present in the printing process.
