AQR Celebrates 30 with Photo Narratives
Alaska Quarterly Review celebrates 30 years of publishing with its Spring & Summer 2012 issue (v29 n1&2). Not to be missed in this issue is a stunning special feature: "Liberty and Justice (for all): A Global Photo Mosaic." This special feature includes 68 photographers from 22 nations with both narratives and photo captions. Though some photos are black and white, the entire section is given full color, glossy paper with the photo receiving its own facing page to the text narrative. This is an impressive inclusion for any literary magazine to provide its readers, and the force of these images and text - running the gamut from hopeful to heart wrenching - is truly astonishing.
