Group f.16

Medium offers a way to connect with photography year round through support of Group f.16. Members of f.16 enjoy opportunities to attend year-round events, receive a limited edition fine print, be invited to dinner with our Keynote Lecturer, and more. Group f.16 was named in honor of the legendary California photography Group f.64, as well as a nod to 2016, the year Medium became a non-profit organization.

Studio visits

We host annual studio visits with guest artists, offered exclusively to members of f.16. These include both regional artists as well as visiting artists from across the United States, and are often timed to coincide with exhibitions, book releases, and other milestones in that artist’s career. Studio visits are a great opportunity to meet artists in their creative space while developing a greater understanding of their work and working processes.

Fine print program

Each year our Second Sight Award recipient creates a unique, special edition print for f.16 members. The print is available nowhere else, and is included with your $500 annual support. As a core part of the Group f.16 experience, the fine prints produced by our Second Sight Award recipient are an exceptional way to build a collection on a budget. Past fine prints include works by Leonard Suryajaya, Justyna Badach, and Robert Calafiore. Our 2019 Second Sight Award recipient, Mariel Miranda, will be the next fine print offered to f.16 supporters in 2019.

Events year round

A great benefit to supporting Medium as a member of Group f.16 is the opportunity to engage with a creative photo community year round. Our events, interactions with guest artists, dinner with the Keynote Lecturer, and fine print program are only the beginning. The peer connections and communication with Medium offer added incentive to support a grassroots photography non-profit based in San Diego. We look forward to welcoming you to an upcoming f.16 event!

Group f.16 has connected me with artists and passionate members of the San Diego photography community. The films, artist studio visits, and collection visits are just the beginning
