in what is another cracking edition of Man on the Moon, there are many pages dedicated to Uruguayan guerrilla fighter and politician, José Alberto Mujica; the incredible portrait photography of Dan Winters; and the ‘instruction manual’, a creative how-to section this time gives advice on how to make a magazine cover, and how to win over critics, how to make an indie movie and an interview with Kofi Annan on how to avoid wars. If you haven’t given this magazine a whirl yet, its quality will speak for itself.
available to select until january 17
Spain Media follow up the impressive first issue of Man on the Moon with an issue that is beginning to establish it as a men’s mag with a great deal of substance. In this issue there’s some well-photographed fashion shoots of men of action; interviews with porn stars, Martin Parr, the Eels’ Mark Oliver and, somehow, HAL 9000. The star of the issue, however, is the superb examples of the photography of the late revolutionary Iranian photojournalist, Abbas Attar, including Saddam Hussein’s bronze statued head being dragged along a road by US troops.add to my subscription
