(2018 – 2024)
We are committed to promoting and championing the most exciting and engaging stories, projects and works with powerful narratives from individuals and communities across the globe. Through our online content, printed publications, and collaborative projects, we want to open up the conversation around art, culture, people and place.
True communities are simply groups of people who keep coming together over what they care about. At the core of the internet, there are two central yearnings: the ability to navigate through information and the ability to connect with others, this platform for us, is a way to champion, empower and amplify the voices of creatives, embracing individual stories about the less heard and the less obvious, creating a space online that seeks to push and inspire the collective. We want Then There Was Us to be an online community that offers real involvement through open collaborative projects and to explore unique conversations that illuminate the meaning, reasoning and processes behind some of the best within the creative industry.
What started as a publication that focused on documentary photography has developed and evolved to include a wide range of creative practitioners, from photographers, artists, designers, musicians, journalists and more. Much like our own backgrounds, we believe that the creative industry is a wide and ever intersecting space. As a small team we have huge ambitions to continue to grow this platform, producing a printed magazine, online content and long form open projects that focus on collaboration and the sharing of stories, information, resources and tools. We want to develop a platform that offers inspiration, celebrating and supporting creatives from across the globe and explore the visual conversation around events, people, place and culture.
