Dear readers,

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that the March 2021 issue of Photo Life
is the last one we will publish.

This decision was extremely difficult to make, but it was necessary. The world of print-magazine publishing is rocky, to say the least. Photography has been undergoing major transformations, and its industry is experiencing increasing difficulties. Our little boat has weathered many storms at the confluence of these two daunting currents, but the final blow—the pandemic—has had many consequences, including significant losses in advertising revenue.

Therefore, it is unfortunately no longer possible for us to continue to sustain the pace, the financial weight, and the responsibility of this enterprise, which relies on the hard work of only four people on staff.

Your support over the years has been our motivation. You have always been our inspiration to do better, to produce high-quality content, and to reinvent. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your love and support and for appreciating the images and stories of so many great Canadian photographers.

This great adventure is ending, but it’s certainly not the last we want to experience as photography lovers.

The Photo Life team
