poem and a photograph

Here at Tell Tell Poetry, we’ve recently worked with several clients who wanted to create hybrid poetry-photography collections, so we’ve been thinking about how these art forms sit in conversation with each other. Their modes of expression are so similar, after all—a poem and a photograph offer the viewer/reader a single frame within a larger narrative. So, we started our search for literary journals that accept poetry with photographs.

Both forms also rise out of the artist’s intentional awareness. The French philosopher Roland Barthes was famously enchanted with photography and once said, “Every photograph is a certificate of presence.” Exactly! This is what a poem is, too, right? You have to be there, looking, paying attention to write a stunning poem or to take a moving photograph.

Because we are so obsessed with poetry and photography, we wanted to compile this comprehensive list of literary journals that accept submissions of poems and photographs. We discovered a bunch of awesome journals and can’t wait to submit our own work, too!
