LensCulture is a photography network and online magazine about contemporary photography in art, media, politics, commerce and popular cultures worldwide. It is based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
LensCulture sponsors international photography awards and grants several times per year, as well as traveling exhibitions of photography. It published its first publication, The Best of LensCulture, Volume 1, in 2017.
The organization was founded in 2004 by its editor Jim Casper, who moved its editorial offices to Paris from Berkeley in 2005. As of 2018, its staff is spread across Amsterdam, Berkeley, California and other locations around the world.
Will Coldwell, writing in The Independent in 2013, described LensCulture as one of the ten best photography websites, calling it a “definitive resource for anyone who wants to keep up with the latest trends and debates in contemporary photography.” Critic Sean O’Hagan, writing in The Guardian in 2012, listed it among the eight best photography websites or online publications, calling it “one of the most authoritative and wide-ranging sites.”
