SIGN THEM UP: The photography magazine Dear Dave is switching tracks — ditching advertising and newsstand sales in favor of limited-edition runs that are sold by subscription only.

Created in 2007 by lensman and educator Stephen Frailey, the magazine is a mashup of photography and writing that publishes idiosyncratic and original work. It bills itself as being “interested in the most unpredictable work of all genres and sensibilities, and from the familiar to the unknown.” Hilton Als, Lynne Tillman, Glenn O’Brien, Joan Juliet Buck, Liz Goldwyn, Ryan McGinley and Richard Woodward are among the artists and voices that have contributed work. Dear Dave won the 2018 Lucie award for Photography Magazine of the Year.
