¿What is Carrete?
Carrete is a platform dedicated to analog photography, whose main objective is to spread the work of artists who use this format, and to share a lot of other content such as interviews, events, material reviews, reports, etc. Everything related to this world.
This is a project in which we have invested a lot of time and hope. Our main goal is to entertain, inform, share... a world that we love and we are passionate about, with people around the world.
Three years ago we started our journey in social media. During all this time we have shared information, events, curiosities and lots of photographs that have been provided by artists from all over the world. Artists who were looking for a platform where they could share their creations and concerns with people as passionate about photography as they are. We have been meeting point for all these people. We are a community in crescendo.
It is now and thanks to all of them, when the Carrete team intends to take the next step: to translate everything that has been virtually till now, to the paper, into a physical publication that will be launched every six months. A magazine that pretends to be the meeting point of all those who want to show their work, and of all those interested in this art, whether they are gallery owners, collectors, teachers, photographers, amateurs... A magazine for everyone.
Who wouldn't like to see their photographs published in an old fashioned way? This is what analog means: something physical, something that can be touched, smelled, felt in your own hands. Something that will remain in time and will leave a mark.
Could you help us to make it happen?
How will the first number of Carrete be?
In the first edition you will meet a large number of new talented photographers, thanks to the sections of Gallery and Projects, where we will find your most current and original proposals.
We interview Rafa Badia, renowned photographer, publisher and teacher at Grisart School. With him we will talk about his photographic vision and his latest book dedicated to the city of Barcelona: "Barcelona Blues".
We will also interview Eduardo Pavez, multi-faceted photographer and Youtuber who will tell us about his channel, his photographs and his new and successful book.
We will have an extensive review of one of the most famous cameras of the Olympus brand, the Olympus Trip 35. Reviewed by Daniel Freire, face and soul of Olympus Trip 35 Repair. Ramón Jiménez, Brand Ambassador and Store Manager of Lomography Embassy Barcelona, collaborates with us, which will unveil the wonders of the film Ilford XP2 400.
All this accompanied by our Agenda in which we will include the best contests and events of the guild so you do not miss anything.

Objetivos de la campaña
The first objective of this campaign is to help us get 5,500 €, which is the minimum to cover most of the expenses of the first number.
But this does not end here. We want to invite everyone to a presentation party where we will also present the photographs that will appear in the magazine. We also want to update Carrete's website to use it as a complement and support to the magazine, spreading analog photography online aswell. For this we need your help and get 7,000 €.
And last but not least, we want to ensure the future of this publication, making the second number of Carrete, to reach further and grow the community of readers. For this we need your help and try to reach 10,000 €.
We only need one thing: we need you in our team. If you support us, we will continue working. Are you joining Carrete?
