My brother is starting up another project, dude must have a million projects on the go by now. He’s so cool.
Anyway, this one is super exciting because it includes me!
I’m going to be the political writer for Jared’s quarterly print magazine called Field of View!
According to the ‘about’ section of the newly created website:
The field of view is the extent of the observable world that is seen at any given moment.
Different animals have different fields of view, depending on the placement of the eyes. Humans have an almost 180-degree forward-facing horizontal field of view, while some birds have a complete or nearly-complete 360-degree field of view. In addition, the vertical range of the field of view in humans is typically around 100 degrees.
In photography, the field of view is that part of the world that is visible through the camera at a particular position and orientation in space; objects outside the FOV when the picture is taken are not recorded in the photograph. It is most often expressed as the angular size of the view cone, as an angle of view.
This site is the blog to the magazine, so that we can constantly update you on sightings of news/work in the art, video, political, fashion, music and other worlds. The printed magazine will have long form articles and full portfolios from photographers and artists. A few articles from each issue will be posted under the ‘Magazine’ tab, so you can follow the print on your screen as well.
Quarterly magazine to begin publishing this summer by Jared Mercer.

*we take (and encourage) submissions
Mostly this magazine will be about art and design, focus on film/photography with a side of music and fashion, and a sprinkling of my ranty-opinionated-far far left of center politics!
I’m going to try and start posting small things up there this week a la my (woefully underused) ‘Leave a Stain‘ site. But in the mean time click on the above link to take you over to what Jared has up there right now, which is a lot of really great photographers’ work, including his own.
And watch for the magazine coming out this summer.
In the first edition of the magazine, which will be released this summer, we can announce that there will be work by Carla Andrade (whose images are displayed below), Bjorn Bare and Amandine Paulandre amongst others.
Topics covered will be new beginnings, such as this magazine. Film, Video, Photography, Politics, Fashion, and Music are the main themes that each writer has a focus on. A few articles from each print edition will be found here to give you a taste of what you’re missing on paper and encourage you to order a copy of Field of View from our online retailer.
