Issue 10 – Kickstarter!

Surprise, we just launched a Kickstarter for Issue 10! Read on for more details or head directly to the campaign page here.

Issue 10

We’re excited to bring you Issue 10, our first themed edition! In response to current events we have picked the weighty topic of National Identity. Going forward we want Loupe to celebrate photography’s ability to document and tackle subjects that matter, and this is our first step in that direction. 

Why Kickstarter?

A small but dedicated team work extremely hard to make each Issue of Loupe. We are passionate about keeping Loupe in print but in this digital age its not easy to produce a magazine, especially a free one! However, with your help we can make Issue 10 the best and most widely available issue to date.


Along with friends of the magazine we have put together some really unique rewards, be sure to check them out and act quickly as many have limited availability! 


Tom from Open Doors has very kindly curated a selection of images from photographers who have previously been featured in Loupe.
We have an image from Felicity McCabe’s What Remains available as an A2 Poster – edition of 50.

We are really excited to offer a number of experience based rewards! The brilliant Tif Hunter  has very kindly provided 8 one to one tintype portrait sessions at his London studio:

We have also teamed up with Bright Rooms to create a special ‘Loupe Day’

For this reward, we will send you a roll of black and white film to shoot in advance (thanks to Parallax Coop for the film!). In January everyone will join us at the Bright Rooms (Peckham, London)  to process and contact the film.  After lunch, we will experiment with photograms and selective development and in the late afternoon, there will be time for an informal group portfolio review. Then its time for drinks – first round on us!
