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

Today we continue the series with a look at PIX.

I came across PIX recently thanks to a post on photo magazines by Constantin Nimigean. It's a quarterly magazine which ties into physical exhibitions and seminars.

Each issue of the magazine, available as PDFs here, focuses on portfolios of images - accompanied by a statement - by roughly a dozen photographers pulled together by a shared theme. The majority of photographers represented are Indian or foreigners working in India. Guest writers preface each edition with texts on the issue's theme.

Projects represented tend towards documentary work made in India, but are definitely not limited to being so. Previous issues have branched out to cover photography from Iran and Pakistan as well.
