The Raw Society Magazine: Issue II
The Raw Society Magazine is a non-profit project dedicated to sharing compelling and important work by our members pro and the greater storytelling community.Touching on themes as varied as social issues, politics, culture, travel and history, what unifies this magazine is its strong focus on the photographic medium and the often personal tone the stories take on.
For Issue II of our magazine we have wanted to be even more collaborative by involving our readers and supporters in the decision of what stories to feature in our next edition!
Below you’ll find the 13 story proposals by different photographers. Each story included a detailed description of the project and why the photographer has chosen said project, as well as a budget and the conditions for producing the story.
Until April 1st 2023, our readers and supportes were able to adopt part of or the entire story that they wanted to see come to fruition. Not only did they contribute to the magazine, but they also ensured fair compensation for our storytellers. Names of all donors will also be included in the acknowledgments section of Issue II.
All donations have gone directly to our storytellers, and donations made were tax-deductible for U.S. citizens.
Fundraising for 9 of the 13 stories secured funding for the magazine! We want to thank all the people who have supported us on this journey, without you, none of this would have been possible!
Issue 2 will be available from December 2023 with pre-orders available from November 2023. If you want to be notified of any updates, do not forget to sign up to our newsletter!
