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.
