In today's economic climate, it is becoming more and more difficult to raise funds by traditional means for independant publishing. Our magazine is made possible though the advertising of local businesses. With advertising sales at an all time low, we decided its time to come up with new ways of raising money.
We are here to raise money for our 13th issue. Please read our bio below, visit the links to see video profiles, and follow us on our website. And, consider making a pledge! We have awesome prizes for those that do and know that your money will be well spent.
BIO When opening Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine you enter a pictorial history of both the unseen and iconic moments of everyday life. It is organized in such a way that it has become many things to many people. As a photo journal, we share our travels and experiences. As a photo diary, we share our accomplishments and heartaches. And as a photo album, we share our families and friends and reach people on a level they have been familiar with since their first birthday party. Our publication is currently composed of black + white photography. We have contributions from photographers of all levels. Inspired by the traditions that began with National Geographic and Life Magazine, we hope to revitalize the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document.
Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine is based in San Francisco and is off-set printed in black and white on glossy stock, perfect bound with a cardstock cover, holding 100 pages at a run of 3000 copies. Hamburger Eyes is carried in shops, stores, libraries, galleries, and museums across the entire planet.
