Honest.

Honest. HONEST. - Print Magazine dedicated to Analog Photography. HONEST. is a promise kept among friends to do more. To do more when it comes to promoting the photography we love, to do more to support the amazing artists who create these wonderful photos, and to do more to share it with as many people as possible.

In Vienna in the Fall of 2014, this promise was made between three friends. Now, it's being kept between friends across the world, with vastly different backgrounds but one common passion. These people make up the HONEST. Family. We here at HONEST. don't consider ourselves as anything more than a means of keeping this family together, keeping them engaged, and keeping our promise.

Happy Birthday Ansel!

Happy Birthday Ansel!

Happy birthday to the great Ansel Adams who was born on this day in 1902!

On his first trip to the Sierra Nevada, in June of 1916, Ansel Adams went armed with a camera—a Kodak No. 1 Brownie—and started shooting. "I expect to be broke if I keep up the rate I am taking pictures," the budding 14-year-old photographer wrote to his Aunt Mary in San Francisco that summer. "I have taken 30 already."

Adams’s energy and capacity for work were simply colossal, he often labored for eighteen or more hours per day, for days and weeks on end.

He kept shooting for almost seven decades, until his death at age 82 in 1984, by which time he had become a world-famous photographer and environmentalist.

"A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words."

BREAKING NEWS!
Kodak Alaris announced today at CES 2017 the reintroduction of iconic KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Color Reversal Film — a result of the resurgence in the popularity of analog photography.

The slide/transparency film for professional and enthusiast photography will be available this fall in the fourth quarter 2017 in 135-36x camera format.

KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME is known for its extremely fine grain, clean colors, and great tones and contrasts … and was the choice for generations of photographers as well as National Geographic Magazine for many decades. And it’s coming back!

What Louis Daguerre saw

In celebration of Louis Daguerre and the 177th birthday of photography, we wrote down some thoughts on his famous first photograph.

Yesterday marked the 177th Birthday of Photography. It is strange to think that something like photography, that seems so firmly anchored in our modern lives, has been around for almost 200 years. It is strange to think that every visual we are confronted with every day on our computers, phones and…
