I met photographer and fellow Brit Lucy Helton at an ASMP portfolio review last year and was thrilled to bits and really impressed when she emailed me about this new venture.Sombra Projects
was co-founded by Lucy, Tiana Markova-Gold and Tom White and is "a platform for documentary photography and socially conscious art. Utilising multiple methods of distribution including community-based projects, online showcases, site-specific exhibitions, print publications and affordable fine art prints, our goal is to make documentary photography accessible to as wide an audience as possible. Working with contributors from various disciplines, we aim to present documentary-based work in innovative ways, enhancing the experience of the viewer and providing an arena in which engagement and debate are both welcomed and encouraged."
