I Thought I Was Alone

I love the sense of community within the photography world. It seems everywhere I go there is another hub of photographers banding together, helping each other, providing a platform to show their work. I Thought I Was Alone, the brainchild of photographer Lele Saveri, is just that. "I thought it was time to create an online platform for photographers who, while being very different, are united by a common starting point: to capture what surrounds their lives without worrying about the whats, the hows, and the whys," Saveri says via the site, "I thought I was alone, but maybe I am not." Saveri is currently the photoeditor for Vice magazine in Milan.


This is definitely a case where the sum is greater than the whole of its parts (pardon the cliche). As a group, these artists have garnered attention not only for the organization but as individual photographers.

Check out those featured on I Thought I Was Alone, here. And there is always an open call for submissions...
