Nowhere Diary is a community for photographers, founded and curated by me — Danish photographer Kim Høltermand.

Since 2018, I have curated Nowhere Diary and promoted the work of photographers, telling their stories and featuring their books on photography.

I wanted to create a unique platform for photography and for photographers, a place to share the many stories and memories found in photographs, a place to inspire others and a place to help the growth and development of photographers.

By promoting and sharing the work of photographers through Nowhere Diary, hopefully I am helping more people learn and discover photography in all its aspects — from everyday documenting to exhibitions and book publishing.

Nowhere Diary is my one-man work of love. I have worked hard to build this community and get to where it is today. Researching and curating takes almost all the waking hours of my day.

If you find any inspiration or joy in Nowhere Diary, please consider becoming a Nowhere Diary supporter.

There are two options: You can sign up for a loyal subscription with an automatic monthly/yearly donation or you can support with a one-time donation in any amount.

Each month I spend hours and hours (and more hours) researching and curating Nowhere Diary. I have no helpers, no interns, no assistant — I am a one-man band and Nowhere Diary is my love and my life.

If my hard work has made your life more inspirational or helped you in any way — artisticly of personally, please consider supporting the continuous life of Nowhere Diary with a one-time or loyal donation.

Your support means the world.
