Advertise in spot magazine

spot magazine is the only Texas-produced publication about fine a­rt photography.

Published twice a year, spot magazine features award-winning commentary on photography and photo-based art exhibitions in Texas, the United States, and abroad.

spot is mailed to individual and institutional members of Houston Center for Photography, libraries, and distributed free to colleague institutions for an average readership of 5,500 people.

Readers of spot include art collectors, curators, gallery owners, artists, photographers, art-enthusiasts, students, and professionals. Published unremittingly since 1982, spot‘s archive is one of the few sources preserving the history of the early regional photography scene.

For 35 years, spot has provided an outlet for photographers to share portfolios, and for authors to compose in-depth criticism, exhibition reviews, and original interviews.

spot has published interviews with prominent photographic artists such as Richard Misrach, Larry Clark, Alex Prager, and Stephen Shore.

Writers for spot have included Gay Block, Clifford Owens, Vicki Goldberg, and Eugenia Parry.



The majority of our readers are based in Houston (80%) and the rest are all across the United States.
