There’s a characterful portrait gracing the cover of the latest issue of Professional Photo, provided by Italian American photographer Michael Chinnici, whose love affair with Cuba forms the basis of this month’s Project feature. Michael explains how he’s not just inspired by this remarkable place, but he’s also creating a record of its culture as modernisation sweeps across the island bringing fundamental changes in its wake. Tapping into the theme of glorious decay that’s still the hallmark of much of Cuba’s infrastructure, French photographer Umbertha Richeux shares her atmospheric portfolio with us, which consists of a revealing series of self-portraits, all set against a rich tableau of sumptuous yet slowly decaying abandoned buildings, sourced across Europe. Elsewhere in this issue we’re finding out how master portrait photographer Paul Wilkinson managed to remove the crowds from a busy scene in the centre of the tourist hot spot of Oxford, while Chris Ord is continuing his unmissable lighting masterclass series by demonstrating what can be achieved through the use of natural light supplemented by a single light and softbox: we guarantee you won’t believe what he’s managed to extract from the unpromising setting of a multi-storey car park! We’re showing you how to sharpen up your act in our latest Affinity Photo workshop, checking out how image stabilisation technology is changing the way you can work as a filmmaker in our CVP Move Towards Motion series and Lisa Devlin is telling us why she felt obliged to re-start her Thrive Convention after having to cancel the event at the height of the pandemic. Plus we’ve got not one but two major camera reviews for you this month, the eagerly awaited return of the Olympus OM-1 and the video-focused new Panasonic GH6. So much to read and catch up on, so make sure you don’t miss out!
