Our vision is to provide photographers around the world with inspiration, information, and a sense of community.
Although there is lots of information available online and many magazines about digital photography, we believe in the need for a printed magazine all about analog photography. Having a magazine with book-quality reproductions in your hand is like seeing a beautiful print of a photo, and can’t be compared to content viewed on a screen.
The German-language PhotoKlassik magazine based on these ideas has been a huge success for six years and our new international team is taking that experience forward. We are excited to bring together a really first-class team of photographers from different areas of analog photography, from large format landscape to instant street over development specialists and online blogger personalities.
The PK International team is in the final stages of preparation to print our first Special Edition in September 2018. Subscribers will get the magazine delivered to their door and also have online access to selected content right here from this site.
