You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,

A Guernica Photographer Wins Best Photo Book of the Year
March 16, 2012
Photograph by Rafal Milach
Sometimes it seems as if there are as many photographers working in Russia as there are Russians. The former USSR is the kind of place photographers love—gritty with whimsy, historically significant, and currently in flux. But, few do it as well as Rafal Milach does. His book, 7 Rooms, which Guernica featured in the art section in January, was recently awarded Best Photo Book of the Year by Pictures of the Year International, an important contest for photographers, editors, and photojournalists. It’s a well deserved honor as few photographers manage to capture both the essence of a place and the lives of the people who live there with such elegance and insight.
Congratulations to Rafal from the Guernica team.
Readers like you make Guernica possible. Please show your support.
