Sticking with our theme of no theme, this issue contains our most diverse range of projects yet. It’s a real celebration of the varied styles in contemporary photography.

Matthew Genitempo won the Loupe x Photograd competition with his project Jasper, a poetic documentation of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, and the men who live there. We loved the work so much we decided to put it on the cover.

Our online editor Harry Flook talked to Jack Fleming about his new body of work, Punching, which focusses on amateur boxing in Bristol and Brighton.

Pop My Mind

This week the Photograd team met with the creators of Pop My Mind, a new online creative platform based in Ipswich, Suffolk. The platform allows artists of all genres to create new work based on whats previously been uploaded to the site. It really gets your mind working on new ideas. To us it's a completely different way of working, but something exciting nonetheless. We're going to try it out for ourselves. Watch this space!

The Pop My Mind team are doing amazingly well with the creation of their site and we're excited to see where things take them. We're also really grateful for their support towards Photograd.

Our meeting with Pop consisted of a brainstorming session for collaboration ideas. We'd love to work towards an online gallery of submitted entries from both platforms, a new mix of photography and fine art. For our next meeting we're listing theme ideas; at the moment Photograd are considering some kind of narrative, but let us know what you think!

Check out Pop My Mind and see if you'd like to be a part of what they're doing!
