Artist Empowerment. Collector Stewardship. Community Building.

Obscura is a growing and vibrant community of artists, collectors, curators, and builders, brought together with a mission to produce NFT native photography. We envision the blockchain as the first place for photographic images to commence their cultural circulation. Through thoughtful curation, we enable collectors to support and assemble new work from a diverse group of artists around the world.

Our organization empowers emerging and established photographers by bringing their projects to life. We are an organization run by artists for artists. While commissioning world renowned photographers in projects with full creative autonomy, we redistribute a sizable portion of funds through grants, exhibitions, and more opportunities with input from our burgeoning community.

Help us continue our mission by acquiring one or several of our Season Two Obscura Patron Passes. You'll receive 8 NFTs per pass, a series of free NFT airdrops and additional exclusive benefits in the Obscura ecosystem - all while you're supporting artists in web3.
