Float Photo Magazine was founded in March 2014 and was created with the goal to share and celebrate the photographic work of a versatile roster of contemporary photographers from around the world. From young and emerging to established artists, Float features high quality and creative work with the intention to inspire and push forward the photo community. In addition to their growing online and social platform, Float curates themed online magazine issues where emerging artists and establish artists share the pages to create a unique visual representation of the selected theme. Float offers artists various opportunities and platforms for exposure – Instagram takeovers, book reviews, artist interviews, curated online magazine issues, online and physical exhibitions and more. Float takes pride in collaborating with many other platforms to create a unique, open minded and welcoming space for photographers. Since 2014 Float has collaborated with Littlefield Art Space to have their group exhibition ‘Space’ shown for several weeks, Subjectively Objective creating together photo publication ‘The Vernacular Of Landscape’ along with exhibition of selected works at Usagi NY, a summer group show at Carrie Able gallery in Brooklyn curated by Damien Anger, a collaboration with Casual Science on a printed publication with an enamel pin set and in addition with the first Rust Belt Biennial scheduled for September 2019 at the Sordoni Gallery Wilkes University, PA.
