Welcome to our very first ARGUS zine edition!
To introduce our exciting new format, we have compiled a collection of our very best works from 2012 for your viewing pleasure.
In our main feature ‘Welcome to Labour Room, Griffith graduate Kelly MacIlvenny shows the complexities of being an expecting mother in rural Nepal. We showcase works from the 2012 Cambodia Special Project on issues in the war torn region in our Gobal section, and on the home front, we explore local stories of heroic ventures, heartbreaking challenges, and the humour in cultural differences. You can view our outstanding stand alone images in our best of 2012 Singles.
Like the mythical creature Argus, our team strives to be the ever-watchful guardians dedicated to relaying the thousands of unique and diverse stories from across the world.
The ARGUS is a non-profit, student-run, visual journalism magazine that offers new perspectives on issues worldwide. Our aim is not only to communicate the many different viewpoints to our audience, but also to encourage and support contributing students to cultivate their perspectives and storytelling abilities.
The ARGUS has published dozens of feature stories online. For this first book edition, our editors have worked tirelessly, searching through the stories from the passed four years to bring you the ‘best of the best’, ‘cream of the crop’, for your viewing pleasure.
