Summer, holiday time of and the slow season are here. But our mini editorial team has no rest and has prepared for you a fresh issue of your magazine which is becoming more and more popular. We have crossed the magical thousand fans on Facebook. It gives us great satisfaction and appreciation of our work. The number of fans of pictures is growing and with the boom of smartphones almost every person on the planet owns device which is able to take a picture. A good photography, however, requires something more than having a camera. An excellent picture can drown in the billions photos generated by the every minute and often falls into oblivion. Photographers, if they want to be successful, are forced to take care of media agenda and to build their own solid image. They must have transparent and direct portfolio with a clear signature. SAM wants to help in this matter. It collects fragments of a mosaic to create an image of Slovak photography in confrontation with the world.
The concept of an independent magazine is a living creature until the deadline of each issue. We always tame it, pour it in a nice envelope and imprison on the web. SAM 15 compared to previous issues gives the cover to young unknown author who modestly sent us the photo to G@LLERY. After seeing his portfolio we realized that this talent cannot remain unnoticed.

Several Czech photographers are featured in SAM 15 after our visit of Open Air photo Festival in Cesky Krumlov. We have started partnership with the AoRTproject (Atelier of rocking talents) which is similar to our New wave. After taking part on OAFF, SAM in the near future is going to promote Slovak photography through projection on FOTOEXPOevent in Prague. Stay tuned.
