I was saddened to see this particular email show up in my inbox this morning. Online publication f11 Magazine is suspending its run, after only six years. F11 was created to have a focus on photography and the photographers who create it, rather than the gear. It was all about appreciating the work, and discovering the journey of those who make it.
I’ve been reading f11 Magazine for about 5 years now, and it’s pretty much the only monthly publication I do read. Printed magazines are boring to me, and I’d rather just read them on my iPad anyway. F11 magazine’s goal was simple. To create a free magazine for those interested in photography, paid for by advertisers and sponsors. But ultimately it was not to be.
