Celebrating artfully-crafted photography in both print and digital formats.
Join us in celebrating Diffusion’s TEN year anniversary! It’s a milestone we are very proud of. In an effort to reflect our appreciation for our readers’ support and the photographic community in general, our theme for our tenth annual is:
A LOVE LETTER TO THE CRAFTERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY
In our podcast, The Diffusion Tapes, the topic of “the photographic community” often comes up with my guests and how their peer’s support and collaboration feed their projects. This is what Diffusion has been for me the past ten years, a vehicle for collaboration, a venue for personal curatorial expression, and most importantly my lifeline to some the finest people I’ve ever met.
And although I’m here for the art, I am biased to the people. I celebrate you.
So now, let us celebrate some art. A love letter to the crafters, an homage to the history, the celebration of bonds made, you know, all the warm and fuzzies. For this milestone issue, we intend to focus more on storytelling and less on abstractions. Help us spin a yarn. How about in ten chapters? Seems apropos to me.
