Editor's Letter London April 2002
Welcome to the first of many—ei8ht, where we print it as we see it! ei8ht is a magazine of photojournalism, it tells stories: stories that challenge and inspire how we see the world; stories that convey feelings and inform; and stories that pose questions and deliver refreshing points of view.
In this and subsequent volumes we will pay homage to the work and dedication of photographers and writers around the globe who continue to pursue stories that they feel are important. These journalists are constantly seeking ways to bring their stories to a wider audience. In this vein, the authors have contributed their work to ei8ht without charge. For this I am forever grateful.
ei8ht is an independent publication founded and financed through subscriptions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support as well as to thank the many individuals who have encouraged me and helped to make this into a magazine of which we can all be proud.
