Spread from Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph showing Russian midget friends in a living room on 100th Street, N.Y.C., 1963

Rick Poynor’s Photo Critique column, posted irregularly since March 2015, has been a monthly fixture on the Eye site since the beginning of the year. You can find all of Rick’s columns – whose subject matter ranges from dust to the Feminist Avant-Garde to his latest article about Diane Arbus (See ‘Different kinds of marginal’) currently on display at the Barbican – on the Eye site.


Eye is media sponsor of the Modern Magazine NY Edition taking place at Parsons School of Design on Wednesday 30 May 2018. The one-day conference speakers include Gail Bichler (The New York Times Magazine), Michele Outland (Gather Journal and Bon Appetit), Alexander Tochilovsky from The Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, Omar Sosa (Apartamento) and Justinien Tribillon & Isabel Seiffert from Migrant Journal. Buy your ticket here. More speakers will be announced on the magCulture site soon.



When you and your stomach don’t agree, a 60-second animated spot for Alka-Seltzer, 1967. Drawn and animated by R. O. Blechman.

There are more articles from Eye back issues that you can read in full, including ‘Pleasure in the process’ my article about MuirMcNeil (whose Eye 94 cover has been awarded a D&AD pencil) and ‘Obsessive meditations’, about photographer Robin Broadbent, the subject of a new show opening next week at Wren London.

From the current issue, you can now read D. B. Dowd’s ‘The draughtsman’s characters’, a sidebar article about R. O. Blechman’s studio Ink Tank, which made animations that were subtle, literate and humane.

New on the blog – ‘Noted #86’ – Feminist Saints, Coralie Bickford-Smith’s Stamp Garden, Paul Harpin’s London Type Foundry, Her Stories and Podium.

Warmest regards

John Walters, editor
