Koken Theme for Your Photo Stories

View Demo


Exposure is highly photo stories oriented theme for Koken engine. It was inspired by great Exposure.co photo stories publishing platform and other photo stories sites like Maptia.com. I highly suggest you trying out Exposure.co platform and you won't have to worry about setting up server, hosting, backups, etc. But for me, as a developer, there is never enough and I like building and improving my site time by time, which is the main reason why I decided to create a theme for Koken - to have full control over my photos and automatically sync with Adobe Lightroom.


Photo Stories

Instead of boring same size thumbnail galleries, with Exposure theme you can create much more interesting photo stories, using photo grids or full width photos. Theme comes with a special plugin for creating photo grids in your essays or pages.
