All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.
- Albert Camus

Reviewed on Newpages
"...Camera Obscura is a fire burning at the center of our field of vision; a note to the world; and a marvelous embodiment of the play of light and darkness in the best, most generous sense of these words and the artistry they represent. "

From Ruelle Electrique
"It's like reading at an art gallery (something I've never done, but which I feel like I have after reading this journal)."
                     Where to purchase the current issue.
