We showcase the work of photographers from all over the globe to explore and be inspired by. Photographers whose pictures convey the essence of a place, or who find the extraordinary in an ordinary place; photographers whose images tell a story.
Street or landscape, still-life or human life, experimental or realistic, colour or black and white...everything can be PICTORIAL. We are conscious that by viewing other artists' work we may become interested in new approaches and experimentation in our own photography. We have created an open-minded and supportive platform for sharing great work, connecting with others, and — we hope — inspiring you.
THE PICTORIAL MAG
In the Pictorial Mag we take a step beyond features. We provide in-depth pictorial stories and interviews with photographers. Whether you are interested in social issues, human interest stories, or special places, the stories and interviews in our Mag are diverse and there is sure to be something of interest there for you.
And if you think you have a pictorial story to tell, please contact us with your suggestions.
Pictorialists were the first ever photographers who presented the case to the art world for photography to be classified as art and, in doing so, they instigated a discussion about the artistic value of photography. They wanted to elevate photography to the same level of painting. Whether photography is an art, and where the lines between realistic photographs and manipulation are drawn, is a debate that continues today as more people become fascinated by photography and are uploading their photographs to social media platforms. We hold photography as an art form in high esteem, while also acknowledging that not all photography is by default art.
