Christmas is just around the corner, reader!

Now is the perfect time to pick up something just for you! You deserve it, don't you?

For the next issue of Shadow & Light Magazine, we will be featuring a few photographers I reviewed at Review Santa Fe, a few weeks ago. We are still in the selection process so names will be revealed soon. Congratulations to those who will be selected.

For our Turning Pages (book review) section, we have Bob Newman with his compelling new release, "Shadows of Emmet Till." Archival images and newer comparative images are featured. Steve Immel and E.E. McCollum will both be serving up excellent writing as well as some pretty good images.

If you grab a $10 PDF subscription (annual/6 issues), you will receive the current issue free and your first subscribed issue will be the January/February 2024 issue.

Here's the link if you can't refuse this offer.
