Please include a short bio and links to personal website/social media. If you are submitting a collection please include a few words of description.

 

We are more likely to publish photos that fit our design aesthetic that centre around everyday life: architecture, nature, locales, landscapes, people, urban decay, etc.  Please note that we may select accepted photos to accompany a piece of writing and/or to use as headers on our website and promotional materials (we will always provide proper attribution).
