SeeSaw - An Online Photography Magazine: “Observation Full and Felt”
SeeSaw is an online magazine dedicated to photographic work that successfully captures, represents, and encourages acute observation, via the photographic medium. They are devoted to publishing and promoting both established and emerging photographers side-by-side - anyone who takes the act of looking seriously, and communicates what they themselves have seen through photographic imagery alone. SeeSaw also encourages writers to directly engage with photography, and regularly present essays, reviews, and interviews that delve deep into the stories, histories, emotions, meanings, and abstract issues that often lie behind photographs. Finally, we present “found” photographs, often made by anonymous photographers - images that were recently re-discovered and recognized for their interest, impact, immediacy, or importance today. Ultimately, SeeSaw aspires to present the art of photography at its finest, and as Walker Evans so eloquently observed, “The matter of art in photography may come down to this: it is the capture and projection of the delights of seeing; it is the defining of observation full and felt.”
