News! New documentary Magazine!
As some of you may know, I set up the Centre for British Documentary Photography and it has grown in popularity and strength. The first aim of this was to create an online space where the public could easily search for and find social documentary photographers and their images. Also and just as important, was the creation of a professional publishing platform. And that feat is soon to be realised. It has taken a mountain of work and coordination with the other photographers involved with the CBDP, but it has all come together. Our launch date is mid March of this year. If you're thinking, "oh no, another photo mag", fear not! What we have put together is one of the most forward thinking publishing platforms seen in recent years. A genuine place where the photographers work mostly on their own stories we have developed a system that allows the CBDP to pay the photographers and writers involved. Think National Geographic, but more homespun - though Issue 1 has articles from as far afield as India and Finland. It has been a delight to be able to put this together and working with the other photographers, in this unity we have a common purpose - to spread the stories to as wide an audience as possible, way beyond the dedicated photo base. If this has inspired you, please take a look at the CBDP website - link on home page - and consider supporting this independent self financed project. Help us to keep print journalism and documentary photography alive.Thank you.
