Measured by its intent, One Twelve Publishing is a movement to save endangered photography: to capture it in its purest forms, accurately reproduce it in print and online, and distribute it to the world. The film, handmade photography, and alternative process work featured by One Twelve Publishing has been practiced and celebrated across the world for decades, yet now it teeters on the brink of obsolescence. One Twelve Publishing is here to resist that flow in the direction of forgetting; to find those artists who appreciate photography as crafted and who want to ensure that generations to come will, as well.
One Twelve Publishing is a Mission. Measured by its products, it is the distributor of art through means that can be considered on their own to be an art form. The publishing company is know internationally for it’s respected fine art photographic annual Diffusion which focuses in unconventional photographic practices. One Twelve also hosts an online gallery that focuses on bridging the gap between antiquated and contemporary photographic processes called Plates to Pixels.
In 2015 One Twelve Publishing is launching it’s new monograph series starting with Contact by Jake Shivery.
One Twelve Publishing is located in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Plates to Pixels Gallery
Plates to Pixels was formed in 2006 (launched in 2007) to promote the creation of photography-based fine art and was established by artists, for artists. The name “Plates to Pixels” suggests the evolution of photography from the archaic wet-plate process to the new digital format of pixels and includes everything in between. Our mission is to provide exhibition opportunities for emerging and established artists working in the photography arts. This includes, but is not limited to, the alternative photographic processes (Daguerreotype, cyanotype, platinum palladium, ferrotypes, pinhole photography, etc.), as well as traditional print processes (gelatin silver, chromogenic prints, Polaroids, etc.), and all digital photographic processes and other mixed media photo-based art. Plates to Pixels provides educational resources to the public – spanning from the birth of photography to contemporary photography trends through artist interviews, online resources, web-based exhibitions and site specific exhibitions.
