PhotoIcon magazine

PhotoIcon – for those who missed the first six issues – is about as cool a photo magazine as there’s ever been.

To prove it, the new issue, just published, is devoted to the photograph in rock and roll. And alongside articles on the likes of Gered Mankowitz and Annie Leibovitz is a fabulous six-page spread on Harry Hammond.

I should, of course, declare an interest. I wrote the piece in question, and the images are from my forthcoming book, Halfway to Paradise: The Birth of British Rock (V&A Publishing, 2008).

But even so, it’s the kind of magazine you’re going to want to own. A snip at just £4-95.
