You’ll have to forgive me for blowing my own trumpet, but I nearly fell off my chair when I saw that Janine Vangool, the creative wonder behind Uppercase magazine, had chosen my photo as the header for her latest letter to readers. I had submitted some shots of my tiny coloured toy collection for the colour-themed issue (no.22) but had had a note to say they weren’t going to use it. I had put it out of my mind and then up it popped in my inbox this morning. I feel very honoured and chuffed. And it links through to my website, which is great — I’m so grateful for the support.
A note from Janine the previous week had brought news that running one of the best magazines on the planet isn’t necessarily that easy or lucrative as she said she had had to lay off her two employees. The only answer, really, is for more people to subscribe to the magazine so that the massive amount of work required for each issue generates more income. It would be a terrible shame if Uppercase didn’t continue on its glorious, colour-saturated path.
