Aspect Ratio (AR) Magazine is a London-based online publication with a discerning international readership interested in contemporary photography, ideas, issues and personal stories presented in a greater depth.
AR is produced by an editorial team of established working photographers, writers, and professionals from other creative backgrounds, who are free from the commercial demands of schedules and ratings. So each photo-essay is released when it is ready, to maintain a continuous flow of quality articles. Moreover, we are unafraid to experiment with the format to suit the strongest presentation of the content.
AR includes photo and written projects, interviews, stories, and photographers’ profiles. We publish photographers who want to inspire readers and show them a fresh perspective about the regions they work in or a raw idea they have developed.
AR welcomes submissions from all photographers and writers – aspiring to emerging to established.
