An Artfully-Crafted Photography Annual (Est. 2009)

Diffusion is an independent, reader-supported annual that highlights and celebrates artfully crafted photographic artwork including, but not limited to, handcrafted, alternative process, mixed media, installation, photo as object, avant-garde, experimental, etc. Diffusion strives to spotlight artists pushing the boundaries of traditional photographic processes as well as introducing new and innovative voices through articles, interviews, and image galleries.

Described as ‘a wonderful bundle of inspiration,’ Diffusion is supported by an audience of photographers, gallery directors, educators, and art enthusiasts worldwide.

It's a beautifully reproduced book that is awe-inspiring in its inclusion of a broad range of approaches to contemporary photography. Diffusion is so thoughtfully curated, with smart design, and done so with heart. I'm so proud and honored to have my work included and to be among truly outstanding photographic art.

I feel that the material, design, and content are top tier. The curation really seems to be different than what is typically shown. There appears to be a keen eye for finding authentic diamonds in the rough. Diffusion showcases known as well as yet-to-be-known underdogs of avant-garde photographic arts.
