Josh and I started Fraction Magazine in March of 2008 with idea of promoting great photography. We have published seven issues and several group shows featuring guest curators. Each month, the traffic and attention to Fraction grows.
Because of Fraction, I have been asked to do portfolio reviews in New Orleans, Los Angeles and Santa Fe. At these reviews, I have seen some rather terrific work, and I often ask the photographer to let us feature his/her work. We make no promises as to what it might lead to or who might see it.
Well, last week we received an email from the New York Times asking us to use the work of Timothy Hyde, whose portfolio I reviewed in Los Angeles and who is featured in Issue 7. Obviously we jumped on it but had to track down Tim who was in Italy photographing the devastation of April's earthquake, to get his permission.
Today, Tim is featured on the New York Times blog, The Lens. They are calling it Nature Triumphant. It is amazing work and deserves recognition.
The New York Times discovered Tim here on Fraction.
We would like to say thank you to all of the photographers who let us show their work and to say congrats to Tim. Also, a huge thanks to David Dunlap and Jim Estrin.
