Issue 2

Welcome to the second issue of Bending Light Magazine. When we selected Angst as the second theme for Bending Light we had no idea what we were getting into. The variety of photographic interpretations sent to us has been, to say the least, staggering. Angst resonates deeply with many artists on a range of levels. From anxiety to apprehension, fear to pain, we all experience our own Angst and portray it through our art.

In Issue 2 you will be introduced to the artistic methods and photographic work of our two featured artists: Armindo Dias and Asya Schween. Three intriguing and eye-opening articles are also showcased in this issue. Learn more about David J. Nightingale in David Shirk's interview with the man behind the remarkable Chromasia photoblog. Explore the difficulties of photographing strangers with Rachael Ashe in "Overcoming the Anxiety of Portrait Photography." And let the animal awareness group Voices in the Wilderness teach you about the practice of seal culling in Canada, recently brought into the national spotlight by the protest of ex-Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife.

We hope that you enjoy the variety of images and articles in this issue. We certainly enjoyed looking through all the submissions and working with the artists to present their work to the public. As always, our thanks go out to all of the photographers and writers who have contributed to Bending Light Magazine. This publication would not exist without you and we are continually inspired by your prolific energy.
