In the airport Lounge at Gatwick there were a good selection of magazines for me to look at which provided Some good material to add to my research.
Its interesting to see how much of the magazine is advertisement and how much is content. However the adverts do seem to provide more interesting material for photography purposes than the content. They are carefully crafted and well designed to be slick for their exact purpose.
There magazines are also inspiration that I can use from Lifestyle magazines that aren’t gay magazines. As I am looking at a less flamboyant and straight acting audience it is important to consider the content of these magazines too. Even magazines such as esquire which are aimed at a straight male audience are quite sexualised and use the male form as a object to aspire to in a objective way.
