Brown University, Main Green, Students

Founded in the fall of 2021, The Optic is Brown University’s first dedicated photography magazine.

Created and run by students, The Optic is an online-based publication open to all who attend Brown. We serve to uplift and recognize the extraordinary talent of photographers at the university. 

We welcome all types of photographers: beginners, avid phone shooters, and experienced artists. 

Whether it’s your most treasured candid for our single image submissions, or a curated set of images considered for our biannual issue, we invite you to share your eye with us.

Join us in striving towards building a community behind the lens.
