I was running late and absconded with the review copy of Blind Spot Issue 32, just as I left on a motorcycle camping trip. I poured over the photographs and text in the tumultuous exhaust-filtered light of scenic overlooks, in the yellow/white sunrise breaking over rocky desert mesas and under the bright glare of my small L.E.D headlamp, en-sconced in my tent. Just as Kim Zorn Caputo desired when she founded the photo arts journal in 1992, each page is thick and substantial, the printing ink meaty enough to feel the concern for each image. It was unwieldy—too big for my meager luggage, but I couldn’t leave it and I couldn’t stop trying to fit my eyes around its, well, enormity. The whole issue is, in fact, inconveniently large and bookish, but then that’s because it’s a double issue, a tribute to Caputo, who died in 2004. Issue 32 is evidence that, sans founder, Blind Spot has resolved to be stronger than ever. Legacies are uncommon, history is a clique; most of us steal our own stories when we die. Every now and then, though, someone just does something for the love of doing it and it becomes infectious, making their earthly steps meaningful and leaving the imprint of something bigger than their own story. Blind Spot, where famous and unknown voices bleed and crop with equal attention, is just such an imprint. There is not a page that fails to qualify as a saga, a moment in time worth being lost in. But then, if that weren’t the case, it wouldn’t be Blind Spot. ZANE FISCHER
