“A picture is the expression of an impression.
If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognise it?” – Ernst Haas


The Independent Photographer started in 2016 with a simple idea: to connect and support like-minded photographers around the world. Through our monthly photo competition, online community and magazine, we are committed to giving emerging artists the space and freedom to unleash their creativity and offer photographers the opportunity to share their work with an ever-growing international audience.

Together we aim to bring you a curated selection of the best contemporary photography and hope to see you take part and connect with us – Thanks for visiting!
