Celebrating our 20th Anniversary!
A bimonthly photography publication about photographs (rather than cameras!)
Articles, interviews, and portfolios all about images and the creative process.
The premise of LensWork is that photography is more than mere craft. Photography is, or can be, a way of life.
LensWork is a 96-page, 8½x7” paperback periodical — a duotone, book-quality, paper-based, anthology-style bimonthly publication.
Focus on images
Four to six photographers showcased in print edition issue
Anthology style, with portfolios like little "books within a book"
Non-technical and non-academic
Emphasis on the creative aspects of photography
Beyond cameras and equipment, beyond film and chemistry, beyond pixels and technology lie the mysteries of the creative life shared by those who strive to communicate and express themselves clearly – fine art photographers, commercial photographers, amateurs and professionals.
Just like the finest hardbound fine art books, LensWork is printed in duotone which has deeper blacks, richer tonality, and can reproduce warm hues that more closely match warm-tone original prints.
Content and only content
A magazine without advertising? Really?
The entire content of LensWork is a generous helping of insight, wisdom, experience, inspiration, motivation, examples, and a connection to other photographers who are pursuing the creative path like you.
LensWork has won the prestigious Benjamin Franklin award (the "Oscar" of the printing industry) an unprecidented five times! Thank you, Hemlock Printing!
