ei8ht is the magic number! Well it has worked for us. This issue of ei8ht, Vol.2 No.4, marks our eighth issue and two years of existence. With each edition we have striven to achieve our goal of publishing compelling photo stories that inform, challenge and inspire us. On these terms I am confident that this issue will not disappoint, full, as it is, of vibrant and innovative photo essays.
During the past two years of publishing ei8ht I have been fortunate to receive guidance from dedicated individuals who have helped bring the magazine from its initial concept stage to the printed version you hold today. Their names appear below on the masthead and their continued involvement is a testament to the passion they share with me for photojournalism. Similarly, ei8ht has been aided by you, our subscribers, readers, advertisers, editors, photographers, wives, husbands, families and friends, and the back cover page of names is designed to thank you all for your contribution and support.
I hope this issue captivates and carries you along with us to explore the diversity of photographic expression we present now and in the future. When Vol.1, No.1 went to press in 2002, little Louis, whose image faithfully appears on this page, was just a wee babe small enough to hold in one hand. Now he is an energetic and eager two-and-a-half-year-old child mastering his universe. I look forward to watching him grow up on this page as ei8ht too develops and claims its place in the world.
