New York-based JunkMag combines photos, artist interviews, and music and fashion journalism. Originally published in periodical issues as Junk Magazine until the switch to blog format in late 2005, JunkMag is now a premier go-to for insight into today’s downtown lifestyle and coverage of what is upcoming. Started in 2003 at Oberlin College in Ohio, JunkMag was originally primarily a showcase for R-rated nudey photos of our fellow college students and the occasional musician interview. Today it’s a culture digest that still features such photos and interviews, and much more. Our models are still amateurs and people off the street, and our interviews focus on artists who’ve made themselves what they are. While we have shifted over the years, our philosophy remains the same: put the everyday in front of a lens and it’s undeniably sexy. In addition to the material on this site, Editor/Photographer Brad Walsh’s photos have appeared in and on websites for Nylon, MTV, NY Daily News, Page Six Magazine/NY Post, Teen Vogue, Spin, Urb, Seventeen, Village Voice, NME, Alternative Press, Attitude, Pollstar,, Latina, The L Magazine, Gawker, Jezebel, Queerty, HX, and others. Catalog shoots have included 410BC, Kill Shop Kill, Moody Mamas, and Yanna; and fashion week coverage for Gawker Media and Misshapes. Associate Editor Kathy Cacace has been published in The DC Examiner, McSweeney’s, Useless, and Qr magazine. She is currently two-for-two at winning Gawker headline renaming contests.
