Documentum is a collaborative quarterly art publication presented by Fall Line Press (USA) & color photography pioneer and master Stephen Shore. It offers a new look at artistic creation and contemporary photography in relation to the cultural ephemera of our time.

The inaugural issue of Vol 1: The Instagram Series opened the dialogue about artists’ use of the photo-sharing platform as a central part of their practices.

The second issue of Documentum examines speci cally the serious play in the literary text-with-picture space found on the Instagram platform. Six artists and writers who use text and image centrally in their work have curated the issue.
