Thinking About Contributing?
iTEM MAG is now seeking contributors and independent contractors for multiple collaboration projects across its print and digital platform. We are searching for people with substance from an array of backgrounds.
We love to feature artists, designers, models, and the creative works of fashion photographers and illustrators, all that capture a perspective of what it mean to be "in this exact moment" in the respective fields of: fashion, art, music and culture.
Please send 3-5 examples of your work or a portfolio link to:
Please send all other inquires, interests, collaboration opportunities, comments or ideas, to the same email. Thank you and much consideration, as I work directly with each and every one of our contributors.
Off of the coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean
lies a mecca of untapped creativity
just waiting for the chance to fully blossom.
Bursting from our urban city streets of California
rests the hearts of rising voices,
and emerging talents
with so much hidden potential.
In This Exact Moment
is a platform which highlights
the California cultural experience
by visually and metaphorically
showcasing it to all people
willing and wanting to listen.
Among artist and non-artists alike,
iTEM is building a community
that fosters individual voices
as much as it strives for community collaboration.
Through physical and performance art
our mission at iTEM
is to connect people through our art movement.
iTEM is where people come together out of interest,
open-mindedness and curiosity.
As we welcome all to experience the iTEM perspective.
Here, our visual content
plays on the edge of reality and fantasy,
by emphasizing on underground fashion,
art, music and sub-cultural phenomena.
iTEM’s multifaceted print and digital aspects
combine together through timeless articles and editorials
that are socially, politically, culturally
and historically stimulating for the millennial mindset.
