Since 1977, HOTSHOE Magazine has been publishing the most inspiring photography, pushing the boundaries of design and print, whilst exposing emerging artists and helping to launch the careers of some of the world’s best known photographers.
This summer will be our 200th issue and to celebrate we want to do something that we've never done before — commission three of the UK's foremost photographers: Simon Roberts, Matt Stuart and Sam Hiscox, to each produce a series about what it means to be in London in 2017.
Sam Hiscox (b. 1984) lives in London. He has been drawn to making photographs from a very young age and has shaped his natural instinct into a career. Over the past decade he has shot for many reputable publications, commercial clients and produced a catalogue of personal work focused on delivering poignancy to the basic human experience. His genuine and honest works portray friends, family, intimacy, relationships and solitude in seemingly surreal yet familiar spaces with the aim of bringing a tangible and relatable sense of comfort in knowing that every facet of our emotional and physical existence has equal place in our world and his.
Simon Roberts (b.1974) is a British photographer based in Brighton, UK. He originally studied a BA Hons Degree in Human Geography at the University of Sheffield (1996), a subject which has informed much of his subsequent photographic practice. Often employing expansive landscape photographs, his approach is one of creating wide-ranging surveys of our time, which communicate on important social, economic and political issues.
Matt Stuart (b1974) is a British street photographer, a member of the In-Public street photography collective and a nominee member of Magnum Photos.
In addition to this we will be including a portfolio of words and images by emerging artist Victoria Jovert, interviewing the V&A's Martin Barnes and asking some of our favorite people like Todd Hido, Michael Hoppen, Simon Baker, Augusta Edwards and David Campany why they hate photography.
As its our 200th issue, we are looking to produce an very special extended 200 page issue, printed with a gold pantone throughout on beautiful high quality paper and designed by London studio, The Entente.
We now need your help to make it happen!!!
