WE ARE ONE YEAR YOUNG TODAY!
One year ago today we published our first feature. It was the second lock-down in Austria, when I dreamed up this project. Having always loved all the arts and photography, I wanted to create a platform that would provide a way to feature the work of arts photographers and creators of lens-based art.

So go ahead, don´t be shy: if it is about the arts or considered photo art, submit your work, I guarantee that while not everything we get is published, every submission receives due consideration. Cheers to the love of art!
