About Capricious magazine
Capricious is an international fine art photography publication for emerging artists. The presented work is neither commercial, nor fashion photography; it creates a visual narrative without intermediary contextualization. Capricious is a potential makeshift, personal gallery of autonomous works, as well as journal. Readers become critics, curators, and artists rather than mere consumers.
About Capricious Space
Capricious Space is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A different place with a different feeling, our mission is to be a sanctuary away from the city’s clamor and strife. Capricious Space is a resting ground, an oasis. Throughout the year the Capricious Space will invite artists to transform the space according to their own visions and dreams, then toast their creations with a series of artist dinners, lectures, screenings and readings, thus bringing the Capricious generation together. Upcoming shows include And then, what then, curated by Andrea Longacre-White, opening July 11th, 2008.
*A percentage of the sales of Capricious #8 will benefit B.A.R.C shelter, a no- kill animal shelter in Brooklyn.
