Seems that everything is coming together at the moment.. We just hit 400k followers on tumblr!! This now puts us among the most followed and referenced online photography galleries in the world. With over 600 featured photographers and 4 printed volumes, If You Leave has come a long way in 4 years, starting out as a small (and my first ever) blog and a first publication limited to 200 copies. Goes to show.. Not so long ago would IYL have been a niche thing with a small reach, but trough the power of the internet, tying us in together, we’ve allowed it to grow strong and become a platform, supporting young and upcoming talent! So big ups to all you amazing and inspiring photographers out there and a massive thank you to all who’ve supported this project.
