It is a project open to the participation of photographers who are interested in publishing thematic portfolios, stories, essays, reports and other work in the field of photography.
Launched in 2016, from Portugal, fotoalt.Mag! Encourages the participation of photographers from all over the world who can send their portfolios and photographic stories through the Submissions page. The selection is done by the project team, which selects the works to be published.
The fotoalt.Mag! Has as its starting point this website and has not defined at the outset a periodicity with regard to the publication of contents. Anyone interested in receiving updates on new portfolios presented, stories or photos published can subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on facebook, twitter and instagram social networks.
Since 2001 a group of photographers has been growing, evolving and making photography, having as a point of contact, learning and socializing in a site called fotoalternativa.net (RIP), known as ALT among its members.
For the last 13 years, amateur and professional photographers, mostly Portuguese, but also of other nationalities, have created a real digital archive of photography encompassing genres ranging from documentary to artistic, from street photography to experimental, encompassing a variety of styles, themes and formats. The ALT came to be an Association with two physical spaces dedicated to photography exhibitions in Lisbon and Oporto.
The fotoalt.Mag! Is born of the desire to show some of the photography that was produced during the ALT activity and also to present new works carried out today, not only by the members who were part of this community but also by other photographers (invited or self-proposed) whose work fits into the spirit of the project.
