Óptica is a print magazine founded in 2016 designed to honor women, femme, and non-binary photographers creating documentary, experimental and conceptual photo-based work. Each contributor offers a distinct vantage point, a rich perspective, and a lens that redefines a lane that has historically been defined by a white patriarchal gaze . By printing beautiful zines, Óptica offers a closer experience to images and stories through pages of color, weight, and texture while offering the opportunity for photographers to be to have their work printed through an accessible publication and be webbed into a community of passionate image-makers redefining photography, its purpose, and its trajectory.
