Issue 48 - March 2013

From the Editor:
I've been a fan of street photography for quite sometime, and I've had a desire to do a Street issue for as many years. But I have to be honest, this issue nearly killed me.

Let me explain.

Finding two male photographers who had solid street projects was not the problem. There are plenty of male street photographers out there in the world, and I am thrilled to show you the work of Richard Bram (no relation) and Eric Kim (cousins). But finding two female street photographers proved to be a bit of a task. I had to resort to posting to the Fraction facebook page, begging for help. Why is this?

Luckily, through the use of social media, I was able to find two, fantastic female photographers who are doing terrific photographic street work. I am very excited and pleased to show you the work of Stella Kalaw and Polly Braden.

Creating this issue has led me to think a lot about the nature of project themes and how men and women may be drawn to photograph different things. I would love to further this discussion on the Fraction Facebook page.

I hope you enjoy this issue.

Sincerely, 

David Bram
Editor-in-Chief
