Junior Magazine is a photographic journal that provides a platform for emerging talent in Irish documentary photography. It seeks to foster a new photographic community and shine a spotlight on outstanding work that is too often overlooked. In showcasing the work of Dublin photographers, the magazine also serves as a de-facto love-letter to the city they call home. This issue features the work of six photographers each of whom provide a totally unique perspective on the world around them. The theme of the second issue is ‘freedom’. Within these pages are presented features from some of Ireland’s most promising photographers. Additionally, photographs are combined with the written word, as some of Ireland’s emerging literary talent respond to images from Clare Lyons, Darragh Soden and more. The magazine is divided into three different sections: Projects, Stories and Poems.
