Our Journal, Witness, is guest-edited
by a different contemporary artist, whose photographs and writings are
featured in that particular issue. Witness is distributed internationally
by Nazraeli Press.

Magazines and books are generally edited and designed by unseen hands, hands that are often limited by the ideas and agendas of the publisher. What if, we thought, an artist was not only the primary focus of each issue in this biannual series, but as “guest editor” was also responsible for the design of its cover and much of its contents as well? Stephen Shore is currently creating a series of small, limited edition books which will serve as “visual time capsules.” As Shore himself is exploring the basic ideas of what a book is, he was the ideal choice for Witness Number One.
