Objektiv is a platform for photography. Founded in 2009 by Nina Strand together with Ida Kierulf and Susanne Østby Sæther, it began as a biannual publication with a focus on photography. From 2016 Objektiv have also included Brian Sholis and Lucas Blalock in the editorial board. This year will see a transition for the journal. After ten years of exploring the magazine format, we will expand into another in order to go more in-depth with our content. Twice a year, Objektiv Press will publish an essay-publication on a tendency within photography, giving one person – an artist, curator, or critic – the time and space to present longer, meaningful essays on photography. This change for Objektiv stems from a wish to widen our understanding of photography and to make something that will last longer than the ephemeral life of the magazine. The first two are launched with online conversations on Saturday the 14th of November at Objektiv’s website www.objektiv.no
Objektiv is distributed all over Scandinavia and at The Photographers Gallery in London, and Printed Matter in New York. Objektiv #7 is sold world wide through Idea Books. Objektiv # 14 through Motto Books. In 2017 Objektiv went from page to space, the editorial board of Objektiv curated their first exhibition, Subjektiv, which opened at Malmö Konsthall in June and later at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo in November.
