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’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.
