The Black Snapper is a magazine website that showcases one
photographer every single day in a dedicated slideshow. The magazine is
curated by internationally renowned guest curators, such as Abbas of
Magnum Photos, the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Art, Bamako
Encounters, FotoRio, the Photo Museum Antwerp, the Aperture Foundation
and The Guardian Weekend Magazine, to name a few. Each guest
curator programs one week by inviting seven photographers. 
In
addition to presenting established photographers, Black Snapper aims to
emancipate young and talented photographers from Asia, Africa and South
America. Black Snapper hopes to inspire viewers with compelling work they haven't
seen yet and to cross cultural and political borders in the process. 
On
top of all that, Black Snapper wants to be at the cutting edge of viewer
interaction. They are currently creating a dialogue system that will use
visitors' ratings to recommend comparable artist slideshows and hand
them a list of their personal favorities. They are building up a huge
archive and are working hard at giving users as many convenient ways
possible to browse all that beautiful photography and to revisit the
slideshows they like best.
