A new place for our magazine!

As I started the project I thought that it would not be easy to convince other street photographers to contribute to this new print magazine. Because I'am not well known on the web and they have to give their images to me in full resolution, but after contacting some artists via twitter I was overwhelmed by the reactions of each one of them. I got much great support and I finished the first issue in just three weeks.

And now the result of this project lies on my table and from time to time I grab it and flip through the pages enjoying the work of great photographers. It was simple and made my heart bump. With that new energy it is easy to navigate the ship into the open sea again to create a new issue from the scratch. The great thing is that this magazine is a "print on demand" product without any pressure to be successful. There is no certain goal to reach. I am satisfied when all the included photographers enjoy a high quality print and maybe make new friends around the world.

If you want to order the an issue you just need to click on "Order it now!" in the top menu bar. And bear in mind that this magazine is the result of a non-profit project. It is sold at cost price. We don't make a penny of it!

If you want to know why it is so important to print you should read this great and simple article written by Eric Kim.

What's next?

The next issue of Street_Spot is a special one about Dublin. I recently traveled to this great city and I met Giuseppe Milo there in person. He said that he knows some great street photographers from Dublin and the idea was born to dedicate the next issue to this awesome place. We will try to divide the magazine into different topics to present the city in all it's glorious details. The issue is also meant to be an appetizer for other street photographers to visit this place.

I also want to share some interviews with the contributing photographers on this blog.
