The issue entitled “Seeing is Believing” tackles the imaginary space “through the mirror” which deals with phenomena existing on the margins of scientific knowledge. Here photography plays the role of medium, documentary record, witness, and even of a means of evidence which attests to paranormal phenomena, spiritism, decadence, thoughtography (“mental photography”) and so on. On the other hand, the nature of the theme also touches certain motifs of the visual arts, such as mirroring, ghost images, and trompe l’oeil, even branching into Surrealism. The issue will combine the aforementioned approaches and perspectives, hoping to provoke mediation on the relationship between the technological image and reality, and on the authenticity of the medium of photography itself.
