Gomma has gone a long way since its first Gomma Magazine was published in 2004. Throughout the years Gomma has been actively promoting photography and photographers, both the established and the emerging. It has given space to extraordinary talents and have been able to pick unknown artists and allow them to exhibit to a worldwide audience. Gomma has published and interviewed renowned masters such as Antoine D’Agata, Anders Petersen, Daido Moriyama, Simon Norfolk, Lise Sarfati, Roger Ballen, Trent Parke and many more. It has managed to retain an independent, uncompromised and edgy look that allows Gomma‘s Editors to keep working with the most talented international artists.
