Curious Frame is an online magazine dedicated to showcasing contemporary photography that is unique, conveys ideas, stimulates thought and encourages interpretation. Photography from emerging and established artists that goes beyond the single image by allowing us to immerse ourselves in a body of work to explore the photographer's vision. We call it exploring photographic possibilities.
The concept for Curious Frame really began in 2011, when Joshua Evan and Leanne Staples established the online street photography magazine Shoot the Street. After publishing weekly photographer profiles for nearly a year, they decided that focusing solely on street photography was too limiting and decided to put the project on hold.
Fast forward to 2017, Joshua and Leanne are both still passionate about street and documentary photography, but have also developed a deep love for creative photographic techniques like abstract photography, intentional camera movement, moving image, experimental techniques, alternative processes and other photographic possibilities.
Curious Frame was born from a desire to showcase photography that deserves to be seen for more than a fleeting moment. Work that may or may not fit the traditional photographic genres. Work that explores new concepts or techniques. Work that engages us, that pushes the boundaries of photography and that makes us ask questions. Work that makes us curious to know...
