Photography Editor

The Wanderer Online

The Wanderer Online is a fairly new website based out of the Edmonton area that gives a voice to young writers, photographers and illustrators in the Edmonton area looking to find an audience for their work. As Photography Editor, I work with the site’s other editors, especially with the Visual team, to procure custom video, photography, illustration, design, and art which represents the context, tone, and content of the writing for each entry of the magazine. The goal is to find harmony between beautiful aesthetic and also support strong local writing with equally representative visuals.
