The trade edition cover of Aline Smithson’s Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography. It’s exquisite, we suspect you’ll agree.

We’ve been enjoying a whirlwind of activity here at The Magenta Foundation. We held the hugely successful Flash Forward Festival Boston presented by TD Canada earlier in May, the Magenta: POP Pittsburgh exhibition, and if that weren’t enough, we’ve launched a Facebook page for Magenta Magazine which you should definitely follow. Our fearless MagMag editors including Bill Clarke are posting sneak peeks, insights, and news. We’re already at nearly 200 Likes and growing quickly.

With so much exciting stuff going on, we wanted to be sure to stop and show you this highly anticipated book cover above for Aline Smithson‘s Self & Others, which will be published by Magenta this fall. Her portfolios are online on her site, so you can preview them to get a glimpse of the gorgeous and inspiring portraits her book will hold, which you can pre-purchase for $60 right here.  If you’ve watched this space or our social media, you might recall how Aline’s Kickstarter campaign was an immediate success. We had a good deal of eager anticipation (you could even call it nerves) before the campaign, but we shouldn’t have! Aline, of Lenscratch fame, has a huge contingent of supporters and the contributions rolled in quickly.

One thing we saw over and over again on Twitter and Facebook was people eager to announce they had contributed and urging others to support Aline’s book because she has supported, taught, mentored and helped so many in the photography and visual arts community for so long. And so, we are terribly proud to show you this cover and humbled by the enormous positive response thus far. Enjoy, and thank you for your continued support!

Self & Others: Our Kickstarter Campaign With Aline Smithson

posted February 10, 2015 in Announcements

On February 5th, we launched our second Kickstarter campaign with none other than the lovely and talented Aline Smithson. You may know her best from her super amazing photography blog, Lenscratch.

It is such an honour for all of us here at Magenta to bring Aline’s twenty years of photography to you. Please come and support the book Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography here on Kickstarter.

As of this posting, we’ve nearly doubled our modest campaign goal of $25,000. A huge thanks to everyone who has stepped up to support us. However, we’re not done fundraising yet! Every little bit goes toward helping us reach our total publishing costs, which far exceed the goal we set.

And please join us on Facebook on February 12 at 11 am PST / 2 pm EST for an Ask Me Anything session with Aline. “Like” our page if you haven’t already, and come ask her anything you like.

We hope to see you there!
