Welcome

Sometimes it’s good to step back and consider our motivations for photography, and what we hope to

achieve. So why do we photograph animals, for example? Huw Lewis-Jones, the author of Why We Photograph Animals, discusses this fascinating topic on page 10. Another highlight is our feature on the major exhibition featuring the work of two great women photographers, Julia Margaret Cameron (who needs no introduction), and Francesca Woodman, who died tragically young in 1981. There’s also a diverse mix of in-depth reviews, including the latest OM System Tough camera and the Sigma 10-18mm lens, while macro fans won’t want to miss the feature on the current Close-up Photographer of the Year winner. Geoff Harris, Deputy Editor
