Issue #1 The Artificial

The first issue of our new project WerkHaus Zine is out now in print and digital editions!

It celebrates and promotes contemporary urban photography and provides a platform to support our fellow photographers and share their work.

WerkHaus is a new print and digital zine which works as a collective space to document and re-imagine our urban lives and spaces.

The images selected came from an open call which invited photographers (and artists who work with photography) to respond to the issue’s theme: The Artificial

We tried to keep the process of applying as simple and open as possible, in order to make it inclusive, with the aim of being accessible to people who are often under-represented in the photography world. 

The open call had a positive response and out of 60 submissions 20 were selected for inclusion, based on both the quality of work and the artist’s response to the theme.

Workhorse Collective would like to extend our congratulations to the contributors below on being selected for the inaugural issue of WerkHaus Zine.

We would also like to thank all of those who responded to the open call and have interacted with us via our social media accounts. It’s been great to meet lots of new artists and photographers and explore their work.

We hope you all are as excited as we are about the launch of WerkHaus Zine Issue #1: The Artificial featuring:
