A cyber-based, e-zine and gallery, published in Melbourne Australia. ISSN 1836-845X
Welcome to altfotonet.org, one of the many burgeoning art review e-zine/galleries on the net. A kind of artist's run cyber-gallery for lens based practitioners.
This site sits somewhere between the democratic cacophony of sites like flickr and corporate styles of many commercial galleries, without the formality of state run institutions.
This is the publishing end of a group on flickr, the flickr group was specificaly set up to seed this publication.
To seek submission to an upcoming exhibition, you need to submit work via flickr. If you don't have a flickr account a free one will suffice, join, upload some images to flickr, then join http://www.flickr.com/groups/altfotonet-dot-org. In all likelihood your work will end up here, in one of our upcoming issues.
In the spirit of a true web 2.0 identity, we also have a blog [http://altfotonet/blog]. The blog's aim is to discuss, work recently discovered, or work that is being contemplated for publication. It aims to elucidate 'the why' 'the how' and 'the what', of the publication's existence.
We are currently seeking submissions from creatives/artists/idealouges/ratbags/visonaries, who use lenses and light sensitive materials to make statements, create ideas or explore the notion of 'photography' and what it, 'photography', means in the 21st century.
The inaugural issue of this publication was published in Febraury 2009, we plan to publish quarterly.
