A reader, Christian K., put this question to me yesterday, and I put it to you: What's the best magazine left for original photojournalism?

Mike R: "Magazine? Is that something like a 'record album?'"
Mike replies: You mean like this?
psu: "I like the Guardian Eyewitness app on the iPad. Or is that not what you meant? :-)"
John Krill: "Harper's, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone. Just about any large city newspaper. We rarely give press photographers their due. Don't look just for photoessays but also how publications use support photography."
Vincent Bilotta: "The New York Times."
Howard Owens: "I subscribe to the New York Times on the iPad primarily for the photojournalism. If sports is your thing, Sports Illustrated is great of course.
Michael Shaw: "TOP honors (sorry...) to News Photographer magazine, published by the National Press Photographers Association. From the NPPA website, 'non-members can also order a subscription online or download the order form.'"
James Symington: "National Geographic is the only one that really comes close in my view."
robert e: "Didn't you link to Lensculture a few days ago? Impressive. Andy Adams' flakphoto.com is another excellent curator of photojournalism projects. Not as intense, but The New Yorker's "Photo Booth" is often worthwhile, featuring mini-slide-shows of photojournalism, both old and new, which I appreciate. I couldn't say whether it's part of the paper edition. I seldom bother to operate a printed magazine these days, but I expect to see good photojournalism any time I pick up the New York Times' Sunday Magazine, National Geographic, or ESPN Magazine."
JohnMFlores: "David Alan Harvey's Burn Magazine has some great work from upcoming photogs."
Tregix: "6 Mois."
