International Site Profiles: 5 Magazine


We're periodically posting short profiles that will collectively provide a starting point for an exploration of international blogs, online magazines, photography-based curation projects and pages.

These sites are being mapped on our International Photo Sites Map for easy reference.

Today we continue the series with a look at 5 Magazine.

______________________________

Much of 5 Magazine is only in Spanish, but it does have some English tabs and subtitled videos and it's easy enough to navigate to include in this series, I think. It's a new, multimedia site, with a page for videos - all that have been posted so far are documentaries - as well as a photo magazine that can be viewed online or downloaded. The magazine also is focused on documentary work. All of the work included is based in Colombia and created by Colombian photographers.
