HOTSHOE has been in print since 1977. Renowned as a cutting edge photography magazine, it is well known in an industry that has changed dramatically since the 1970s. In 2002, HOTSHOE was reinvented as a showcase of photographic portfolios, with a multitude of voices and opinion that include some of the most influential names in photography today, writing in one of the few truly independent publications, and distributed throughout the world.
Each issue is beautifully produced and collectable, focusing on a movement, person or moment in the photographic canon, ranging from New York Street Photography to iconic British photographers from the ‘70s, and themes such as A West African Portrait and An Emotional Landscape that reflect the zeitgeist of our time. Portfolios regularly include influential artists such as Samuel Fosso, Rinko Kawauchi, Trent Parke, Anna Fox, Sunil Gupta, P Guilmoth, Mimi Plumb and Martin Parr as well as previously unpublished images by the likes of Chris Killip and Joel Meyerowitz, appealing to a wide range of creatively minded individuals.
