FROM THE EDITOR
WELCOME TO IMAGISTA
I publish Imagista in order to inspire our audience—and empower—the creative community, who are increasingly becoming undervalued in this, the digital era.
But unlike so many publications about creativity and culture—we do not report from atop the mountain looking down. Our lens is in the hands of the very subjects before our camera: our contributors, our talents, our creators, the conduit to visual innovation across an amalgam of disciplines and genres.
Our contributor’s stories in their words (or images)—on our pages.
Imagista was born from the desire to create and to inspire, not from a board room or even a bungalow in Silicon Valley. We are a global creative community and I am a publisher. And as such, I merely invite you to look and to read—and to never stop believing in the power of creativity.
Imagista staff writer and stories editor Michael Raver’s award-winning plays have been presented by theaters across the country. He served as a judge for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction for three years and regularly contributes pieces for Classical TV, NYC Monthly, Hamptons Monthly, Playbill, Dance Magazine, Cool Hunting, The Huffington Post, Imagista and Art 511 Magazine
