About this project

We Are Historians...

Aint-Bad Magazine is a quarterly photographic art journal focusing on images that explores human existence, culture, and contemporary issues. 

Aint-Bad was created in March of 2011 by five SCAD photography students (Taylor Curry, James Jackman, Caroline McElhinny, Caitlin Moore and Carson Sanders) who are passionate about supporting work made by emerging photographers.  In our minds, photography is man’s best tool for documentation, we are interested in photographic works that have a voice and reach beyond the surface of the photograph.

We love printed matter and you should too!  It is important for us to remain as a print magazine.  We are interested in the dialog that is created between the viewer and the magazine held in hand.  There is an undeniable difference between looking at a printed image and looking at a photograph in the form of pixels on a screen.  A magazine is personal and intimate.  Each page is like the walls of a gallery, carefully planned and curated, an opportunity to reflect upon the conversation of visual language.  Our magazine is an affordable way to look at photographs the way that they were intended, in print.  

The previous issues have been funded by our five editors.  For this next issue we would like to print an edition of 500.  We need your help to support and expand this vision and to bring to a wider audience the images, issues and commentary of some of today's best emerging photographers.

Our first issue, released June 2011, We Are Here, was a bit of a play on words.  It meant that Aint-Bad Magazine had arrived but also that the issue focused on the point to which humanity has come.  This issue sold out of its edition of 100.

Our second issue, A Symptom of Being, November 2011, examined the way in which man copes with his/her surrounding environments.  Breaking out of the purely national pool of talent, we were able to feature two incredible international photographers: Zhang Xiao and Zhendong (Benny) Xu.  This issue deals more intimately with the human condition as seen through the eyes of the photographer.

Our next issue, scheduled to release February 2012, will release in conjunction with the "Madness of Photography" symposium held by the Savannah College of Art and Design.  Issue N.3 focuses on photographic works that comment on the madness of digital expansion.  In addition to the magazine release, we will be hosting a multi-media event February 10-12 at the Little Beast Gallery in Savannah, Georgia.  This event will serve as a supplement to the magazine and will further elaborate on the madness of digital expanse.

Aint-Bad's Manifesto: 

Photography is our best tool for documentation. Images have the power to influence us today and inform us tomorrow.
Images transcend all barriers of language and culture.
A photograph is literally a record of time and light. Besides visual data, there is implied information: who we are, where we are from, and what we think. All of this is encrypted in our visual language.
It is important for us, as visual communicators, to spend as much time as we can exploring, discovering, and documenting.
The photographs that we make today will live forever. We are historians.
