In 2013, Blind Spot is celebrating its twentieth year as the preeminent journal dedicated to presenting new and unseen photography-based art. Blind Spot has published some of today's most renowned artists working in the medium as they were building their careers-Adam Fuss, Vik Muniz, Doug & Mike Starn and James Welling appeared in the first issue-and since its launch in 1993, the magazine has featured more than 400 living artists, including Robert Adams, Francis Alÿs, John Baldessari, Moyra Davey, Tacita Dean, Liz Deschenes, William Eggleston, Rachel Harrison, Zoe Leonard and Ed Ruscha, as well as younger artists like Walead Beshty, Peter Coffin, Anne Collier, Michael Queenland, Amanda Ross-Ho and Seth Price. Printed in the United States by Meridian Printing, Blind Spot is known for its commitment to the highest quality reproductions. Each semi-annual issue is designed as a portable exhibition space where images are given primacy and are unaccompanied by explanatory text. Features are often designed in collaboration with the artists, and recent issues have been guest edited by contemporary artists, providing a visual exploration of specific ideas and approaches to photography-based image making. Blind Spot's unique format and this collaboration of the editors and the individual artists transforms each issue into a work of art.
