This Tumblr is a window into the lens of LightBox, a blog by TIME’s photo department that explores how photography, video and the culture of images define today’s world.
More than a collection of stunning visuals, LightBox is our opportunity to give you a daily behind-the-scenes look at our photography as well as inspiring new projects. We want to immerse you in the visual side of the news and highlight photography that pushes boundaries in the art world. As part of our regular features, we’ll include the backstory from photo shoots, firsthand accounts from photographers in the field, profiles of legendary imagemakers, photo essays and more.
In the magazine, we’ve always tried to showcase the best photojournalism — letting readers witness what’s happening on the front lines and giving them a chance to examine, through portraits, the faces of the people who are changing history. LightBox will also draw on our rich tradition of working with the most iconic imagemakers of the day, from Walker Evans to James Nachtwey, to provide exclusive content from our global network of contributors.
We’re hoping you’ll use this Tumblr as an opportunity to be part of a conversation with TIME editors as well as other readers as we examine the world through photography.
