"The best photography magazines aren't those
that sell gear, but those that help us see
through the eyes of prescient photographers
and think more clearly about the medium itself.
...Another journal deserving wider attention is
Nueva Luz, published by En Foco, a nonprofit arts organization..."
--excerpt from Utne Magazine, Seeing Differently: Photo Magazines with an Angle

"Thirty years later En Foco's presence has made a place in public art for those who are potentially underrepresented and has insured that good photography doesn´t slip through our cultural prejudices."
Excerpt from En Foco Celebrates 30th Year,
by Ilana Swerdlin, Afterimage, Issue 33.1

"In the first week it was ‘on the streets’ I received three contacts from galleries. I am so honored that you have supported my work and believe in me. Sometimes or maybe even most times – the (art) world feels very alienating. Yet, with En Foco, I have found a new family. One that continues to help me develop as a strong and confident artist”
Lola Flash, Photographer (Volume 11#1, 2006)
