I would like to introduce a photography magazine in Japan.
This time, PHaT PHOTO.
While Asahi Camera has its long history and broader readers, PHaT PHOTO, first issued in 2000, is more casual one. It’s “totally unique photography magazine” that is targeted to “those who are conscious about lifestyle and also want to make the lifestyle better with photography. ” Let’s have a peek.
