Publisher’s description: Camera Obscura is a biannual journal of fine literature and photography, showcasing the work of established and emerging writers and photographers with the intention of creating a full-color volume meant to be read and enjoyed, as well as displayed. Writing and photography is not intentionally selected for its collaboration, but is chosen based on individual merit. Contributors to our first issue include writers and artists from the US and Canada as well as the UK, Romania, and Lithuania. Volume One of the Camera Obscura was shipped to subscribers in over thirteen countries.
