Trope Films (old)


At Trope, we believe that documentaries and films are a natural extension of the books and experiences that we produce. Specializing in long and short-form films, we focus on documenting social currency — capturing unique stories and profiling artists who are at an inflection point in their careers and artistic development.

The first subject for Trope Films is documentary series One Frame, profiling 10 emerging photographers from around the world navigating through the complex social media world of Instagram. Their stories, successes and failures give a glimpse into the global stage that social media has created. These short films take Terry Maday’s team to locations throughout Hong Kong, London and Chicago for a unique perspective on urban photographers and their environment.
