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.

Issue Thirteen is finally here!

We’re so sorry about the delay; the wax printer that we use to print Incandescent has had its last meltdown. It was a struggle to find another affordable printing option but we finally found something doable, and are very glad to get this beautiful issue out into the world. Issue Thirteen features 16 talented photographers from eight countries.  A full list of contributors can be found here.  It was edited by Helen Jones  and Erin Barnard; published by Pine Island Press and features a foreword by Cameron Lovejoy and cover photo by Juan Giraldo. Buy it here.
