Umter Magazine

I always like to celebrate new opportunites and new publications, and this one has both! Umter Magazine is designed to showcase emerging and established contemporary image-makers and the new issue is out! The issue features Kayung Lai, Jessica Zerbel, Carolyn Hampton, Alex O’Brien, Kat Kiernan, Jenna Garrett, Maurizio Strippoli, and Ole Elfenkamper.

Issue Four

Umter Magazine aims to showcase artists while pushing forward an ongoing critical discourse within contemporary photography and image-making. They curate and publish online issues bi-monthly, and will be posting themes for issues and calls for entries. Subscribe to our mailing list if you wish to be informed when calls for entries are announced. Issues are available as .pdf files. At this point, the themes are open, providing an up-to-date snapshot of what’s happening in the visual arts community.

Editor and founder, Joe Gasior, started Umter Magazine after graduating from University as a way to stay involved with image makers and create a photographic conversation.
