Caravan

We founded Caravan, an initiative conceived by four independent photographers: Clara Bahlsen (Germany), Teresa Eng (Canada/UK), Felipe Russo (Brazil) and Nicolas Silberfaden (Argentina). Through collaboration and the sharing of resources, Caravan creates a sustainable platform to disseminate independent publications and projects. It demonstrates its passion for the photographic arts by participating in book fairs, photo festivals and exhibitions, working with institutions, artists and the general public. Caravan plans to grow organically, inviting new artists to participate each year, and intends to provide a haven where it can explore and examine the ever-changing landscape of photography.
