WINk – the online photography magazine published by the alternative, highly creative stock agency, WIN-Initiative – showcases some of the best current photography from across the globe and within the WIN community.

So head on over to http://www.wink-mag.com to take a gander at my conversation with Elizabeth Avedon on Viewing Spaces and Sion Fullana on Mobile Photography (Full-on Fullana). They also featured a quick article I wrote about the importance of being engaged in the world around you in a piece called ‘On Trends‘.
