The latest issue of fLIP Magazine at the launch party

Issue #18 of fLIP, prescription the magazine from London Independent Photography (LIP) was launched on Thursday 10th March at The Old Crown on New Oxford Street.

The issue’s theme ‘Street Life’ was well-timed, website like this as the UK is celebrating street photography this year at numerous exhibitions, events and festivals.

There are always lots of submissions for fLIP from LIP’s community of enthusiastic and creative photographers. The first look at the magazine is always exciting to see which work was selected.

All the work selected for the latest issue was shown on a slideshow – alongside many of the images that were submitted but didn’t make the magazine.

Tiffany, editor of fLIP with Hamish and Bardia

fLIP is edited by Tiffany Jones with Virginia Khuri and Jeanine Billington. Their hard work and comprehensive knowledge of the photography world shines through in each issue. Tiffany does a superb job of editing an eclectic group of work into a cohesive collection of images. I think this latest issue is the best yet and it’s no surprise that fLIP is recognised as a premier photography magazine and is being sold at The Tate, National Portrait Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery bookshops.
