Holiday #382

Holiday #382

Bhutan
The latest issue of Holiday Magazine is about the mystical state of Bhutan. Laying between the giants China and India, the small state is fast overlooked. But with its pristine heights, enchanting villages, untouched nature, and, unique culture it is one of the places where true travel is still possible. Holiday Magazine shows Bhutan through alluring photographs and stories about the solitary summits of the Himalayas and Bhutans love for archery, as the means of expression for the Bhutanese soul. The editor's letter sums it up in one sentence: "This is a real journey, the kind that proves there is such a thing as an elsewhere." Buy
Odiseo #12 2018

Odiseo #12 2018

Uniformity
Odiseo, volume 12 is a response to the rhythms of constancy and consistency in life. It evokes ideas of singularity and unconformity but also points at the significance of patterns and belonging, which among other things, helps explain the schisms in our behaviour and mindsets when we are with others and when when we are alone. The need to be part of something larger than ourselves and the need to be left alone. The cultural exigencies and the individual drives and personal peculiarities. Additionally, the written side of the magazine explores the role of artificial intelligence in raising our self-consciousness. Buy

Nice #2

Nice #2

Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire
NICE Magazine turns the spotlight on areas of fashion which are not the most familiar to a European audience: stories about talents in contemporary urban Africa. Published by KLAYM which runs workshops across the African continent on photography, graphic and media design workshops, NICE is a rare title, that intends to support and introduce the rising generation of photographers, designers and writers. This issue is in French and English and it focuses on Abidjan, Ivory Coast. NICE also shows the eagerness of ordinary people in the Ivorian capital for selective wear, which is perhaps best captured in this quote “I am not much of a model, but I often pose for pictures just for the pleasure of it. I love jeans and sportswear. I really enjoyed this photoshoot.” Buy
Aperture Conversations

Aperture Conversations

1985 to the Present
Here’s a meticulous compilation of some historically invaluable dialogues made between photographers, writer, critics, curators, editors, and artists from 1985 to the present day. Released by Aperture, the New York based photography quarterly journal, these dialogues are collected from previous publications of the journal, based on their originality and historical merit. This includes conversations between more than 50 emerging artists and more established ones who openly spoke about the state of affairs and future destiny of photography. Some of the discussed topics include: the relationship between Instagram and storytelling, the story behind why French humanist photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson nearly had a posthumous exhibition while still alive, how did Stephen Shore ended up working with colour...and a lot of other fascinating stuff.

Schmieren / Kleben

Schmieren / Kleben

Aus dem Archiv des KK III der Stadtpolizei Zürich 1976-1989
In 1976 the Criminal Commissariat III, in the state protection department of the city police of Zurich started making a record of political street slogans, colour painting and spray paint art under a file called “Schmieren/ Kleben”. The documentation of what was then considered property damaging acts of vandalism was made by policemen who photographed and scribbled down notes about the the horrendous scenes in little index cards which described the location and type of the “violation”. Seven hundred photos and scanned copies of all the original police cards are gathered in this volume for public access, as a unique document about the political movements in Zurich in the 1970s and 1980s, and perhaps also, in honour of political freedom.
