Osmos Magazine: Issue 08
Edited by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz.
Osmos is "an art magazine about the use and abuse of photography," explains founder and editor Cay Sophie Rabinowitz (formerly of Parkett and Fantom). It is divided into recurring thematic sections—some traditional, such as "Portfolio," "Stories" and "Reportage"--and others more idiosyncratic, such as "Eye of the Beholder," where gallerists discuss the talents they showcase; and "Means to an End," about the side effects of nonartistic image production. This issue includes Tom McDonough’s essay on Share Corsaut, Anton Stankowski’s constructivist photographs and Prem Krishnamurthy’s survey of Klaus Wittkugel’s poster designs. The cover by Blaise Cepis announces his feature forthcoming in the following issue.
