On Shadow is an ongoing experimentation into the form of photography on the internet. We present projects and essays from invited scholars and artists, with a specific interest in pushing forms and practices that we find particularly worthy. For more on our editorial philosophy, please see the essay
On Web Form and Photography‘.

On Shadow was founded in January 2008, originally as the blog arm of the publisher 12th Press. It is updated at least once a week, more frequently when possible. For updates, please join our rss feed (more info here) and/or check back regularly.

This website is, at this time, primarily run by Nicholas Calcott.

If you would like to help out, submit, or participate in anyway, please e-mail info@onshadow.com. We cannot guarantee a response to photographic submissions, but we are happy to have your comments, ideas, and your participation.

Thank you!
