Holy shit y’all we have a printer!

So grateful to everyone who made this happen. We can’t wait to get those Issue Fourteen pages rolling out.




Cheers friends we made it!!! As of today we have reached our goal for funding a new printer. Photo by Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte, featured in Issue One which came out almost seven years ago. So much heartfelt gratitude to those of you who contributed, and spread the word about this project! Here’s to many more years of beautiful photos in print. Now don’t forget to send in a submission for Issue Fourteen.



It’s that time again. The deadline to submit for Issue Fourteen is June 15th. Don’t miss it! Email up to 12 examples of your work and / or a link to your website!


Incandescent needs a new printer

We really hate fundraising, but really love photography, and spending tons of time on printing projects. Our time is free, however, printers are not. We are dedicated to showing work by emerging photographers while keeping the zine affordable and not charging submission fees. Up to now that has been possible because of a printer we bought six years ago thanks to Kickstarter — sales from each issue have funded printing of the next. Alas, that printer is no more. We hope to raise enough to buy a new cost effective printer. If we are unable to do so we will put the funds towards an absolutely stellar last issue before discontinuing the project. Please check out our GoFundMe, share, and donate if you can.

We are now taking submissions for Issue Eleven, last day to submit is December 15th and it will be released at the end of January. For more info check out our submissions page.


To submit, email up to 12 examples of your work and your website if you have one. As always, we are looking for color only / film only work.

We’ve made 10 Issues

It’s hard to believe we have already made ten issues of Incandescent! Issue Ten features beautiful work by 23 photographers from 12 countries, was edited by Helen Jones and Anna Knecht Schwarzer, and includes an introduction by Pony Jacobson.

It has been an honor to share the work of 200+ photographers over the last 5 years. Incandescent could not succeed without the continued support of the photographic community, thank you.
