Fotograf Magazine

#40 earthlings

The fortieth edition of Fotograf Magazine focuses on earthlings. As usual, it thus partly shares the theme of the Fotograf Festival, expanding on it through both theoretical and photographic contributions. The conviction that photography, as a recording medium, is only one of the many ways of capturing natural processes and observing changes in the climate stands at the core of the artworks and approaches introduced on the pages of the magazine. A related motif is the idea of the natural metabolism of the image and trust in the capacity to capture within it traces of the reality that is changing around us. This also has to do with the conviction that folk (or artistic), non-scientific practice can serve as a guide on how to depict the climate crisis and uncover the principles of terrestrialness.
