Don't Miss It: Our Most Viewed Series Ever, and Other Trending Work

Record Exposure for a Great Photographer!
Our mission is to discover and share the best of contemporary photography from around the world. So when we featured Elena Chernyshova's work on our site and on Facebook, we were thrilled to see this important story go viral! Over 738,000 people were reached in a week! And it's no surprise that she is currently in Amsterdam, accepting an award at World Press Photo. Congratulations Elena!
"I first saw Elena's work when a few of her photos were highlighted earlier this year at
a French festival of young photographers. We invited her to create a Portfolio Account on LensCulture, and she shared the whole amazing story with us—45 great photos with compelling and informative captions. It's a unique story that grips people from the start."  - Jim Casper, Editor
