A website is only good as the company it keeps, right? Below is a carefully curated list of my go-to places for discovering new work, getting into debt via foreign photobook purchases, reading compelling writing on things I care and write about on this site, and also a repository of places conceived by others that I like to think of as kindred spirits (or at the very least people I’d hope to have an interesting conversation with one day). Have at it! And if you know of places sympatico to these that I’ve not listed, drop me a line and let me know. I am always in the mood for learning something useful that I did not know before.
