Rfotofolio was founded to give photographers access to a larger audience, and to educate the public about all types of photography through our sites, exhibitions, interviews, and articles.

We feel that art can make a difference in the quality of life for many individuals. Who has not been affected by the images we see? From showing the consequences of climate change and pollution, to finding solace in the image of a single flower. Art also serves to remind us that there is beauty in this world.

Rfotofolio supports the work of artists who are struggling to make a living through photography or who are using photography for the social good by awarding the Rfotofolio Grant once a year.

Rfotofolio is a non-profit, tax exempt 501( c )(3) organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Our History

Since Rfotofolio’s inception we have awarded six Rfotofolio Grants.

In 2015 Rfotofolio had our first major exhibition, curating the work of seventy-six photographers in the 2015 Depth of Field exhibition at Art Intersection. To learn about future exhibitions please visit our exhibition page at, Exhibitions.
We published our first book Depth of Field, 2015.
