If you’re a foodie with a knack for good photography, you’re going to want to pick up a copy of Gather Journal ASAP. The new-ish magazine (launched last summer) is contains gorgeous photography printed on matte (non-glossy) paper. The publication focuses on food and the people that make food exciting in our time. The photography however is what stuck out to me because while most food magazines are interested in showing perfection, Gather Journal is a bit more rooted in reality with amazing close-up images of the parts that make up a whole dish. At times it feels like you can reach out and touch the food and ingredients in front of you.

If you see Gather Journal at your local magazine shop, pick it up! Otherwise, you can subscribe for a year’s worth of issues for just $35.
