Hi all,
  I was just mulling this over in my head the past few weeks and I find Zero
great photo magazines. A couple ok, I like Lenswork for it's quaility but
agree somewhat with the previous posters opinion. BlindSpot can have it's
moments and I've found the best photo stories in here ( look for the back
issue with the John Gotti snap shot) Aperture pricey and spotty in quality.
CameraArts too artsy for me. The rest I find ridiculuosly below average,
more in bussiness to sell Canons tha promote photography.
  Most of my frustration lies in the fact that magazines are built on
photography! Why can there be one or two excellent journals out there that
touch on contemporary ideas and occationally drop an old Winogrand
interview. The golden age of photography for me being the 50's and 60's
there are dozens of great talents that are completely overlooked, just the
backlog of talent is enough to have an interesting quarterly and remind us
about Lewis Baltz and help us forget Avedon.

my 2 cents,
