    Amateur photographer here.

    I moved to Egypt from the states and will be here about a year and a half. I gotta say, the book and magazine selections here are killing me. I'm forced to look around online for them.

    So basically I'm asking, are there any ripping groups that deal with magazine scans for high art/photography magazines? Not how-to photoshop thinly veiled camera catalogs, but magazines like Aperture, etc.

    If I can't find them online, I'm pretty screwed. I'd appreciate some help on this one....

    Thanks in advance

    Are you looking for people that post scans of hi-quality photo magazines?
    Just trying to understand.
    Wouldn't they be violating 'fair-use' laws?

    Where in Egypt?? Many kiosques sell some photography magazines, i don't buy them because it'd be cheaper to subscribe online...
