Happy 24th birthday to us!

We have a big surprise for you!

It’s unbelievable, but we have been here for 24 years, so Happy birthday to us AND you. Some of you have been with us from the very start, and that we thank you extra for. We also welcome our new visitors, now over 60,000 visitors per week on AlternativePhotography.com!

We want you to learn, get inspired and connect and over the years we have created over 900 how-to articles, published 6 books and have over 250 artists showing inspirational work in our galleries. We have been able to keep going thanks to our generous supporting members.
Here is our story of how we got started. Thank you to all of you who have helped us become who we are with your contributions of know-how, inspiring work and support!

Now for the big surprise we’ve all been waiting for!

Our 2006 Art & Artists book has inspired many and given artists much exposure. We often get the question “when will there be another?”. We are now ready for the much-awaited Art & Artists edition 2 (!!!). It is a fair amount of work, so this offer is exclusive to our Supporting Members.

Taking part?

  • Members will be invited to carefully select their best alternative process images, and…
  • Tell us about themselves and what inspired to work in alternative photographic processes
  • Read the info
  • Read the Terms & Conditions
  • Open for entry until 30th of November we are hoping to release it by our 25th anniversary (we will do our best to make it).

  1. When Malin contacted me in 2000 about using some of my cyanotypes in her thesis, I was happy to send her some and very impressed with her thesis (and its inclusion of my cyanotypes) which she sent me. Then she created the website Cyanotypes.com which I joined and later AlternativePhotography.com when her website branched out to include other 19th Century printing processes. She has been very generous to use some of my cyanotypes in her books, and always posts my current workshop information. It is an honor to be a part of AlternativePhotography.com and have my work promoted there. Happy 21st Birthday to Alternative Photography, Malin. I look forward to future work with it and you!

  2. I keep coming back to your website for years and every time I find something inspirational. Long live the analogue world, Happy Birthday and thank you for being there!
