Oath Magazine Volume 1 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. The inaugural issue of Oath Magazine steps boldly into the world with an exceptional line up of photographers. Our theme for volume one is dedicated to curiosity. We introduce our ‘Go-See’s’ section, which showcases emerging voices from Africa. Oath Magazine speaks to Ethiopian documentary photographer Hilina Abebe, and we feature work by Johannesburg-based photographer Roger Ballen. ‘The Imaginarium Project’ highlights a selection of faceless portraiture working with human consciousness. Our ‘Boyhood’ curation is a visual representation of how photographers from Africa document the complexities of being a young boy. We saw it fitting to dedicate our inaugural edition to curiosity as we too, are curious seekers of great talent and storytelling through photography.
Oath Magazine is a ground-breaking biannual publication homegrown in Cape Town, South Africa that celebrates the art of photography, champions emerging voices from Africa and shines a light on overlooked archives. We are committed to discovering, celebrating, and promoting emerging photographers from across the African continent. We offer a space for new artists painting with light to showcase their work and provide a visual diary of key talent from other areas of the world. Our platform exists to champion new work and open conversations about the visual arts across Africa to a global dialogue. Oath Magazine presents to the world a curated view of the sweeping frontier of contemporary African photography. We recognise the need to interpret the great scope of photography talent coming from across Africa by providing a much-needed platform for a diverse new generation of photographers. Our goal is to grant visibility to emerging photographers, celebrate overlooked archives, and champion talent. There is a vast amount of photographic output across the continent, yet the platforms through which to engage with it both on home soil and abroad are minimal.
