Hapax magazine - issue 4  - Reading Room


Hapax / 4


Commissioning and publishing new photography: taking their name from the literary term hapax legomenon meaning 'a one off or that which is recorded once', issue #4 of this slick, small-format photography mag pushes the boundaries of photographic experimentation.

Featured inside are new photographic projects by Elinor Carucci, Andrew Jackson, Through the Lens Collective and Aaron Schuman; word-image collaboration between artist Eman Ali and poet Ali Al-Jamri and new curation from Pelumi Odubanjo bringing together work from Hélène Amouzou, Seif Kousmate, Bernice Mulenga and Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou.


Oh, and make sure to appreciate the nifty pull-out pages tucked away inside... 




Hapax Magazine, led by co-editors Christiane Monarchi and Gordon MacDonald, redefines the traditional visual arts magazine by focusing on generating fresh images and ideas. They support artists and authors in their creative endeavors, catering to a global audience. The name "Hapax Magazine" is derived from the term 'hapax legomenon,' representing a singular, distinctive departure in an artist's body of work, a one-time creative expression.

Hapax Magazine manifests this concept visually by collaborating with lens-based artists and curators worldwide, encouraging them to explore novel concepts that deviate from their established artistic styles. The outcome is a magazine that stands apart from the conventional model, presenting content that is entirely new and exclusive to its printed pages. In an era saturated with visual content and repetitive ideas, Hapax Magazine provides a platform to nurture innovative concepts, share them with an eager audience, and preserve their uniqueness.
