Unless you will is an online monthly publication of photography curated by Heidi Romano. I have yet to see an issue that doesn’t captivate me in some way. Each issue is focused on contemporary photography from around world but all with a certain mood that keeps me coming back. I can describe almost every photographer I encounter as maintaining a certain quiet brillance. Each issue reads as a sublime encounter with documentation and experimentation.
Previously unknown to me until Issue 18 of Unless you will was Palmer Davis. I felt it very important to share Davis’ work because he has, not only informed my own photography, but also achieved a method of storytelling that relies heavily on mythical and heartfelt elements. I like it.
