About

We founded this magazine to engage the importance of documentation. We are fascinated by the many mediums through which documentation, archival, and witness practices are created. We are artists, thinkers, critics, observers, musicians, writers, researchers, and photographers. Through our individual processes we strive for critical and original documentation in numerous forms; through writing, sound, photography and other mediums. 

The Documentarian is released three times per year: Winter, Spring/Summer, and Fall both in online formats and in print/PDF issues. We also have an occasional newsletter which will inform subscribers of new issues and other content.

We are always looking for new contributors, supporters, and collaborators who are interested in engaging with documentarian ideas. To get in touch with us please drop us a line: documentarianmag (at) gmail (dot) com

We have had several virtual talks in the past, where we moderated conversations between contributors. In May 2021, we hosted Gabriella Achadinha, Natasha Ayaz, and Morgan Bielawski. In June 2021, we spoke with Freddy Detchou and Raini Helmstadter. Both conversations, though unrecorded and now vanished, were amazing. We spoke about what it means to be an artist in the post-Covid world, how important it is to converse with those who disagree with you, what gentrification and climate change have in common, and how to take photographs of strangers. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these talks, or hosting an in-person discussion, please also get in touch via e-mail.
