First of all, thank you to all of you who answered our questionnaire about the future of the Eye of Photography.
To the question of the magazine becoming all paid system, 60% are opposed, 40% are in favor.
Those who are opposed to paying want us to develop advertising. Advertising on the Net are banners and pop ups, and that’s out of question! It would denature the site.
How then, do we pay the collaborators?
Nevertheless, we have heard your arguments.
From today on, the edition of the day will remain free for 24 hours.
At the end of this period, the subscription will be 5 euros per month or 50 euros per year. It will give you unlimited access to all topics, archives and diaries.
Starting on the 1st of January you will see a new section in the Eye of Photography dedicated to films, videos, clips and installations. At the same time you will see a simplification of the classification of the archives, coming back with 5 essential fields: exhibitions, publications, festivals, auctions, news!
And do continue to share your feelings and thoughts.
One last anecdote finally, I do not resist telling you. This was the first answer to our questionnaire about the future of the Eye of Photography:
“Do not ask me for money: anyway, I hate your site that I find uninteresting.”
For a second, it was a drama and then: a gigantic burst of laughter!
