Loupe is available for sale at the PRC for $5.00 per issue. For individual issues, please call the PRC.

Loupe is a forum for new discoveries and new images. Befitting its name, the journal provides closer views of photographic art-making. Interviews with established and emerging image-makers will expose first-person insights about the complex realm of 21st century photography. Commentary accompanying the portfolios illuminate salient aspects of the artist’s process while allowing and encouraging viewers to engage each project on individual terms as well. Images, and the pleasures of reading them, prevail over text.


Loupe 2014 Hiatus

We regret to inform you that the October 2013 issue of Loupe marks a hiatus of the publication. As a small non-profit, the PRC has undertaken a series of budget cuts this year. Publishing a hard copy journal like Loupe is rewarding, but also costly. Thus the organization has decided to discontinue it for the time being. As we re-evaluate our programming at the PRC, we hope to publish Loupe again in the future in it's current or a new format. We thank you for your interest in Loupe and your support. If you have any questions, please contact info@prcboston.org or 617.975.0600.
