Excerpt from Preface:

What can an individual image be, except good? This rhetorical-critical question repeatedly accompanies us when conceptualising the content of our magazine, where we attempt to foster discourse that clearly extends beyond the individual image—discourse that instead posits forms of documentation and, also, serial working approaches as the focus of reflection. The aim here is to consistently comprehend photographic practice as a form of critical commentary or as involvement in or visualisation of politics and everyday life.

Nevertheless, the case still remains that we repeatedly encounter pictures taken by artists whose works, though conceptually-strategically and self-evidently compiled as series in books and exhibitions for content-related reasons, indeed also offer lingering impressions and effects as individual images in and of themselves. They are photographs that captivate simply through their pictorial precision; works that primarily have impact due to their visuality rather than expressing something through approaches to visualising “something”; pictures that lay claim to an enduring validity while simultaneously eschewing both an immediate description of what we see there and a veiling theorisation.
