Half a century ago, when modern photojournalism was exploding as a profession — thanks to 35-millimeter cameras and cheap film processing — a group of photographers including the now-legendary Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa formed a member-owned agency known as Magnum, to license and sell their work. Now, a group of award-winning authors and journalists are trying to do the same thing with their digital content, with a collective called Deca.

One of the founding members of Deca is Marc Herman, a writer and journalist who reported on the war in Libya for The Atlantic, and then turned what he had left into a book-length manuscript that he sold via Amazon’s Kindle marketplace for $1.99.

The collective’s manifesto says: “With every story, every month, Deca brings you what Henri Cartier-Bresson described as ‘a situation, a truth,’ not just an ‘accountant’s statement.’” Stories will be published through Deca’s mobile apps as well as through the Kindle marketplace.
