Obscura is a new kind of funding collective that endeavors to build community and empower photographers to create their dream projects by bringing back the concept of the photographic commission and funding projects in advance. By providing grants, commissions, leadership, education, and partnerships with seasoned photographers in the NFT Photography space, Obscura is creating real-world opportunities for photographers of all career levels entering the Web3 ecosystem.
We believe the value of Photography NFTs does not begin and end with the drop of a new collection. The act of discussing, contextualizing, and historicizing these new works and initiatives in a critical way brings new meaning and value.
Through documenting in writing the thinking around the photography community and the projects that Obscura is helping to build, we can provide insights to our readers by giving further access to the people, ideas, and stories driving this new frontier.
