In the blink of an eye, I am no longer the international editor of Dilema Magazine .
When I was originally invited to this project the idea was I would only act as a guest editor for issue #2, considering the amazing results and the international feedback the editor in chief and publisher invited me to continue .
I looked upon this new opportunity with great hope and expectation, so when I received a email this past friday stating that my collaboration with the publisher Mindaffair and Dilema magazine was to cease immediately, I was left in shock.
I wish I had more to say , but I was totally caught off guard , this is unfortunate but considering the unprofessional nature of the publisher Mindaffair , regrettably I can no longer continue to do business with people who are not true to there word and who go back on there agreements .
I have to thank Micheal Grecco , Hans Strand , Melvin Sokolsky , Daniel Murtague ,Claudio Napolitano , Lyle Owerko , Roberto Bigamo, you are all amazing artist’s who helped me create the best magazine the publisher (Mind Affair) has ever seen .
I must also thank the Photojournalist and contributors in what was going to be a special photojournalism issue en homage to injured photojournalist Joao Silva ,with the proceeds reverting to the Joao Silva Fund.
That issue will no longer be launched. I must thank Joao Silva , Greg Marinovich , Emmanuel Ortiz ,Eddy Van Wessel , Nina Berman , Peter Perreira , Maggie Steber , Fernando Souto, who took the time and effort in sending me images for this never to be launched issue. I must also thank Bruno Portela for his article and the images from Reuters .
To the contributors and to all of you who have ordered Dilema #2 , unfortunately I can not guarante you will receive your magazines. Which, I worked so hard to create . I have tried all that I can, but after only getting excuses and not receiving answers, when I inquired about orders and the contributors issue, when you are dealing with dishonest people you can no longer continue to do business in this manor.
