Gawker: Glaring Omissions: Trace Magazine

Glaring Omissions: Maybe We Should Care About 'Trace' Magazine, But Then Again, Maybe Not

"Do you guys care about TRACE magazine? It's been around for 10 years, started in the UK with Graham as the art director. (He wen t to the Face and now at Giant) They have a book out now 10 years of TRACE. They have a tv station in Africa and Europe and an ad agency TRUE in LA that does all the NIssan ads. Anyway, TRACE and Claude Grunitzky are notorious for not paying photographers, meanwhile he lives in a 1.8 million dollar place and is always traveling to Rio. So.. at the beginning of January the entire staff walked out after not being paid. They came back for a while after receiving their checks on the 15th of the month. Then in February they lost the office space in Soho so the entire staff has been working from home. In March half the staff quit. The publisher, executive editor, art director and the ad director quit. Do you guys care about Trace magazine?

I actually like Trace magazine. I have to be honest, only bought it once (the one with erykah badu on the cover) and did enjoy it. Nice photography. Shitty about the not paying the staff though.
