Introducing Aksgar Magazine

Some time ago, and after a series of conversations with like-minded people, I was included on the Editorial board of a new magazine…

After a long time in planning and then some more for execution, I have the pleasure of introducing to you Aksgar Magazine.

In a sentence, Aksgar (Urdu for photographer) is a new magazine dedicated to the publication of documentary and narrative photography from around the world, in the form of photo essays.

Our aim with Aksgar is to provide a platform to publish work that has normally “less space” in traditional media, whether due to it’s alternative content or because the authors are not well known, but still deserves to be seen.

Besides the online presence, Aksgar will periodically be distributed electronically (pdf, app, etc)and in print. And as a sort of welcoming treat, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you’ll receive the first issue of Aksgar in pdf for free. Want different ways to connect with Aksgar? Follow us also on twitter.

We are currently accepting submissions. If you think your work is suitable to be featured in Aksgar, read the submission guidelines and click that submit button.

This is going to be quite a ride and, I expect, way out of my comfort zone, but I’m sure it will also be a rewarding one.

 

Take a look at some of the essays already published and tell me what you think…
