Expect an eclectic dip into the world of photography and lens-based media from a multidisciplinary perspective. This is the place to catch up on news stories in contemporary photography, photo exhibitions, award and competition announcements as well as interviews with and links to photographers, photographs and multimedia. Feel free to dip in and out at leisure and become part of what I hope will be an inspiring community of voices.
