Lets start with GUP Magazine. Guide to Unique Photography was started in 2005, they publish four times a year and have an excellent website here. They have a newsletter and of course are across social media showcasing some compelling works. I've showed you a sneak peak of Phoebe Snyder (left) and Sanja Marusic (right). The works by Snyder, as part of a series called 'Bookends' are captivating in a way that is raw and delicate. Marusic's images are trippy and remind me of quotes I've read on being an Aquarian. There's surrealism and things that are off kilter and I love it.

Hotshoe is again published four times a year, and has a website here. I picked up issue 200 from Magazine Brighton. I love the design of this one, and I especially love the 'Why I hate Photography' feature, there is an excellent piece written by David Campany on taking photographs, it's given me food for thought, and a place from which to sit and think, which is exciting and scary all at once. On the left is a photo of some works by Harley Weir, the colours and textures are grabbing me, and I can't stop staring at them.

If you're interested in art, design and culture then you've probably heard of Aesthetica, website here. It's a magazine I'll pick up when I remember to, and I'm so glad I picked up issue 80. These images by Dean Bradshaw are everything, the colour, the texture, that pink wig!

Finally we have Puss Puss Magazine (website here). The magazine described as 'luxury lifestyle publication featuring stylish takes on culture, fashion, music and art, all with a feline twist' is awesome. I'm not so into luxury lifestyle or high fashion, but I do love a cat. The standard of photography is high, and I love that many of those shooting are female photographers. Personal favourites include Steph Wilson (left) and Emma Summerton (right).
