“Founded in 2003, Daylight Magazine is the biannual printed publication of Daylight Community Arts Foundation (DCAF), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the use of photography as a tool for effecting social change. By reimagining the documentary mode through collaboration with established and emerging artists, scholars and journalists, Daylight Magazine has become one of the premier showcases for contemporary photography.

In addition to publishing Daylight Magazine, DCAF seeks to help underrepresented communities share their stories by distributing cameras, establishing darkroom and digital imaging facilities, administering photographic workshops, and curating local and traveling exhibitions. Ultimately, DCAF’s goal is to provide these communities with access to the resources and equipment necessary to participate in the global visual dialogue.

We invite interested individuals to initiate and manage self-representative photography projects using Daylight Community Arts Foundation as an umbrella to apply for funding. By working with photographers all over the world we have built a network of succesful satellite projects. Join us!

PhotoPlus Expo: another great year!

This morning I am sorting through the mountain of materials and educational handouts gathered while attending the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC. Others are emailing me to say they are trying all the new digital tricks they learned at the show. The seminars and panels were memorable, it was great to see old friends and to meet so many photographers.

Save the date for next year and plan now to attend: October 23-25, 2008!
