With the May 2008 bankruptcy of the Camera Arts magazine by Tim Anderson, the Publisher & Editor, I thought that the magazine was a goner. Which was sad after I had a great conversation with Tim at the Palm Springs Photo Festival during my portfolio review session. Which resulted in a request to submit my folio Foundations for his consideration to feature in his magazine. So I had dutifully mailed to Tim the whole package of evaluation prints and CDs; the works.
Then to find out that it would probably not every be published by this magazine. Darn, dang and double drat.
Well, I still do not think that my folio Foundations will be published in Camera Arts, but the “magazine” is getting a second (third?) life. Doing a random check of odd things on the web, I just found that Steve Simmons who had owned Camera Arts and sold it to Tim, is now getting the magazine title back. Steve is currently the Publisher of View Camera magazine.
But this time, it appears that it is coming back only as an on-line internet magazine. And supposedly sometime late this month.

Postscript; regretfully Camera Arts magazine did not make its virtual come back, as this magazine is sadly now a footnote in photographic history.
