Letters to Photography

NOTES is an artist-led Scottish periodical devoted to developing visual and critical discourses in contemporary photography. Its goals are to represent, examine and nurture Scottish photography thinking and practice through the creation of interdisciplinary and transnational connections.

In this fourth issue of NOTES, we publish portfolios by Matthew Arthur Williams, Katie Blair Matthews and the collaborative performance duo Amy-Claire Huestis and Suzanne Déry. Written contributions include an essay by Michael Bachmann musing on Eric Magassa’s The Lost series and Mayanne Soret opens up Arunà Canevascini’s Chimera work. Book reviews in this issue courtesy of Nicky Bird who writes about LaToya Ruby Frazier’s The Notion of Family, Birna Marianne Kleivan on Colin Gray’s In Sickness and in Health and Gair Dunlop who writes on Tina Enghoff’s Hate is/Isolation.

NOTES Letters to photography

As we are a small artist lead team we hope these plain language Terms of Agreement are understandable and fair for all:


Unless otherwise indicated in the terms of the subscription package, if you subscribe more then 30 days from the launch of a new issue, you will receive the LAST issue produced, provided there is sufficient inventory.

If we have already sold out of the present season, you will receive a copy of the next issue as soon as it is ready to ship. In either case, as NOTES is only released twice a year, annual subscribers should only receive two copies.


We will happily refund you the cost of the magazine and shipping of for any issues not shipped to you.
