Closing Ceremony magazine is a ceremony for the traditional/classic photography and a warm welcoming to the talented. We would like to offer a platform for those young photographers who might or might not get market recognition yet to present their works on printing and create a dialogue with the world.

The début issue is street photography. The internet and use of graphics software has facilitated an unprecedented speed, which has had a decisive impact on the ways we see and represent our direct environment. While at the same time, the new generation of photographers has found groundbreaking to relocate the borders, hence our awareness of urban reality. The bond between photography and the urban environment has to be reconsidered through a wider range of affiliations, and what makes contemporary street photography so compelling is its ability to lay bare the intricate that determine our perception of reality.
