It's Been Fun. After six great years, the editors of FILE have decided to call it a day. Thanks to all of the talented and generous contributors who made this an amazing experience, both to curate and to visit. The Collection and The Projects will reamin for posterity.
Welcome to FILE magazine. File published images that treated subjects in unexpected ways. Alternate takes, unconventional observations, odd angles -- the photographs in the collection reinterpret traditional genres. The pictures say this better than we can.
Missing Persons. Every once in a while, due to the vagaries of Gmail or our own sheer incompetence (usually the latter), we lose track of the artist behind a photo that we want to publish. Fortunately, this is a rare occurance, but we still have a few lonely strays that we would like like to match up with their owners. Check out our "Anonymous" contributions and help us give the photographers the credit they deserve. Let us know if you figure one out, and if you are right, we will give you an exciting prize.
