Aint-Bad Magazine - Fiscal Sponsorship


We want to thank you again for your generous support of our kickstarter campaign last winter. Your contribution has been well received. Over the past year we have been busy growing and expanding our publication; not only have you helped support the ongoing quality of our print production, it has also allowed us to put more resources into extending our visibility to a wider audience around the world.

Since 2011 we have produced five issues of Aint-Bad Magazine, our most recent issue Surface having released in February of this year. We have proudly featured the work of over 100 new and emerging photographers across Europe, Asia, South America and the United States.

We have expanded our visibility by gaining 15 retail locations across the continental US and are happy to announce our newest and first international retail location in Hong Kong. Heightened exposure has awarded us participation into numerous events over the past year including the prestigious Visual Studies Workshop Symposium last summer and the Magenta Foundation's Flash Forward Festival, scheduled for this May.

We work hard to maintain our mission and in continuing efforts we have applied for, and were recently awarded, Fiscal Sponsorship through Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Please consider a tax-deductable donation of any shape or size. Your fiscal contribution will lighten the financial burden and directly allow us to allocate more energy and effort into visibility and distribution, directly ensure that we can continue the highest-quality publication possible while supporting thoughtful, high-quality, contemporary photography.

Aint-Bad Magazine - Issue N.4 Cover Preview

     / - /   Aint-Bad Magazine Issue N.4 is officially going to the Press!!!   \ - \

For more information check out or website and or Facebook page later this week!

Also, If you have not done so yet please check out our new subscription plan! We love printed matter and you should too! It is important for us to remain as a print magazine and by subscribing you guarantee that we do. We are interested in the dialog that is created between the viewer and the magazine held in hand. There is an undeniable difference between looking at a printed image and looking at a photograph in the form of pixels on a screen. A magazine is personal and intimate. Each page is like the walls of a gallery, carefully planned and curated, an opportunity to reflect upon the conversation of visual language. Our magazine is an affordable way to look at photographs the way that they were intended, in print.

See you around!
