Edited by Peter Martin, this proposed quarterly was issued sporadically, and ceased publication with the fourth issue in 1953. Conceived as a "book in magazine form", two issues were largely devoted to the work of one photographer, Ruth Orkin and Philippe Halsman. The first issue presents five major topics; Photojournalism, Portraiture, Figure Photography, The Salon, and Fashion Photography. The third issue exhibits the work of twelve photographers assigned a similar project in a communal Studio 61: choose from a selection of props, including an iron frame bed, chairs, etc, and choose one of three models. Among the photographers were, Fred Lyon, Ruth Orkin, Jerry Yulsman, Ted Croner and W. Eugene Smith.
Although the first issue is designated Volume 1, No. 1-B, with the introduction stating the intent of this new magazine, WorldCat does not locate an earlier issue among 20 reporting institutions with even partial holdings.
