Why support Lens Culture?
When you donate to Lens Culture, you’re participating in a great international arts effort: the discovery and exposure of the world’s newest and best contemporary photography. Your contribution will help Lens Culture continue to be a leading online resource for photography worldwide.
Lens Culture aims to bring important photography from around the world to broad distribution and global exposure. We publish the work of established, professional, and emerging photographers, and we’re open to all genres of photography, from hard-hitting photojournalism to fine art, and from street photography to the poetic, personal, abstract and human.
Since our inception in 2004, Lens Culture has been completely self-funded, without revenue from advertising or any other outside source. We prefer to keep Lens Culture “content-rich and clutter-free”, and your contribution today will help it stay that way.
Through your donation (via a "voluntary subscription payment"), we can keep running day-to-day, and continue to discover, feature, and archive the work of hundreds of incredible photographers, including our popular audio and video interview series. We also organize projects in photographic education, including portfolio reviews and workshops, and we’re hoping to offer scholarships so some deserving photographers can attend these events for free.
We will thank you on our website.
If you can afford to help us, we’ll be eternally grateful, and we will list your name prominently on our Supporters’ page. For donations of $500 or more, we will be happy to offer a link to your organization or personal web site. For donations of $1,000 or more, we will include a graphic link (e.g. your logo) on our supporters’ page.
Lens Culture’s ultimate mission is to transmit photographic masterpieces and cutting-edge work to new audiences around the world. More than 8,000 photo enthusiasts visit Lens Culture every day, from more than 50 countries. If you’ve enjoyed our pages — and you’re someone who understands the importance of photography — please share this responsibility with us.
