La Lettre de la Photographie: The First Issue!

Founded by: JEAN JACQUES NAUDET, former editor-in-chief of the French monthly, PHOTO, and editor at large of AMERICAN PHOTO in the USA; MAGNUS NADDERMIER, art director and former creative director of GQ, Condé-Nast en France; and ALEX KUMMERMAN, president of Clicmobile and co-founder of Soundwalk, new media specialist and entrepreneur.

La Lettre De La Photographie will provide daily coverage of all major photographic events, and will have special daily themes as follows:

Monday: A behind the scenes look at fashion, advertising and the world of celebrities. Tuesday: Great historic archives will be revealed, featuring former stories from great magazines and exceptional photo agencies. Wednesday: One photographer, one story. A photographer tells us the story about a picture, a great success, or a catastrophic failure. Thursday: With 90 percent of all agency files and independent works unpublished, this daily report will feature an insider's look at some of the best current events stories that we won't find on the front pages. Friday: Our "Coup de Coeur" will feature an unknown, yet emerging talent we would like to help support and recognize, or a talent from the past we'd like to revive. The Week-end agenda: Saturday and Sunday will provide international coverage of shows, exhibitions, prints, books, fairs, auctions, blogs and websites.
