Friends in Pinhole:
For the past year+, we’ve enjoyed meeting pinhole photographers around the world and bringing news, artists, and motivation to the pinhole world. Today we want to take a moment to provide a vision for the future of ƒ/D that puts us on a track for sustainability.
If you’ve followed ƒ/D for long, you may have noticed that we usually publish articles or artist features on Wednesdays, and motivational shares of pinhole photos on Fridays. This schedule, while very rewarding, has been taking it’s toll on our ability to come through on other publishing commitments. Like many creative endeavors, there comes a time when you realize you need to change your approach to get the results you envision.
In order to maintain a high level of quality on ƒ/D, in particular with regards to article content, we are going to change to an online quarterly magazine. This will provide us with more time to gather info, research, and interview. The online version of the magazine will remain free to enjoy.
Most importantly, a quarterly schedule will provide us with the time necessary to produce the upcoming book of pinhole photography at a level of quality that meets our expectations. Beyond the first book, which will be available for sale in the near future, we plan to publish more books of pinhole work. We are also exploring the possibility of a print version of ƒ/D quarterly, based on the ƒ/D web magazine.
You can expect several more regular postings on ƒ/D, including some artist show and book project announcements, before the site quiets down while we prepare the new format. We appreciate your support as we make this change, and look forward to even bigger and better pinhole adventures!
