What began as a monthly online magazine for the New Mexico photography scene has quickly blossomed in to an international venue – and advocate - for fine art and contemporary photography. Fraction succeeds in blending work from both recognized and emerging photographers in a generous gallery space that insures that viewers have a body of work to consider. This feeds into Fraction Editions, where a single image by a photographer (featured in the Magazine) is available at a very reasonable cost to collectors of new work. In turn, ten percent of each sale from Fraction Editions goes into the Fraction Acquisition Fund, which is used to purchase photographs that are then donated to permanent photography collections in national museums. A brilliant system for getting new work to be seen and valued.
