I find much of the photography in Doubletake to be weak, bland, without
vision. I don't see every month, but when I do look, it all looks an awful
lot alike.

There are some photographers' work that is wonderful, and inspiring. But I
was greatly disappointed in Doubletake's overall effort. I think Granta at
times does just as well, except for size, and they aren't proclaimed
supporters of documentary photography like Doubletake.
