About then there was us.

We passionately believe in the reporting of creative revelation, championing some of the most exciting and engaging work from contemporary documentary makers, storytellers and journalists alike. Through our online content, printed publications and exhibitions we want to open up the conversation around events, people, places and culture with powerful narratives that define and shatter the status quo. Covering industry, society, people, places, politics, disasters and conflicts. Then There Was Us strives to destroy the arbitrary reasons many extraordinary creatives and storytellers go unheard. Celebrating, supporting and showcasing the less heard, the less obvious. Creating a real and accessible community of thought and curiosity about what is going on in the world. Then There Was Us.

Then There Was Us is a small non-profit ran by Jonathan Tomlinson and James Wrigley. We want to create a project that truly offers support to those we feature, that is free from exclusion and focuses on sharing the stories and outstanding work from documentary makers all over the globe. We believe in transparency, education and accessibility which is why all of our content is free. You will never see a pay-wall on our online articles and everything from our printed publications will always be available online for free. As a small team we have huge ambitions to continue to grow this project, buying our printed content or offering to donate through our membership scheme will help us get to our goals faster, but it will never stop you from being able to view our content.

Your subscription to then there was us enables us to keep building this project.

————————————

Now that media is under constant threat, we've had to change the ways in which we work. We pride ourselves on being totally transparent. This means you'll never see content behind a paywall and all our issues are free to read as online content over on our website. 

Your support is essential to keep independent projects like this running and for as little as £1 a month, you can help us grow.

We believe this platform is a way of making a necessary positive change to the photography industry, and together can keep growing and offering more projects. Visit us on InstagramTwitter and Facebook, or over on our Website.
