The South African photographer with a graphic edge
‘Sam Haskins is an important photographer. There, I’ve said it!’ This is the first line from acclaimed editor and critic Bill Jay’s* Album (Nazraeli Press, 2007) entry on South African born photographer Sam Haskins. Like Jay, I, too, believe that Haskins is an important photographer, writes Wayne Ford. Haskins’ influence is like a string of DNA that can be seen throughout contemporary photography – particularly fashion photography.

Watchmen director’s cut on DVD – better than the big screen?
Further to my review of Zack Synder’s film of Watchmen, writes David Thompson, I thought I’d post a few words on the newly-released Director’s Cut DVD. With an extra 24 minutes of footage, the expanded version runs to just over 3 hours and offers a number of improvements on the theatrical release.
