Presenting fresh perspectives accessible to the photo practitioner and the culturally curious alike, each issue examines one theme at the heart of contemporary photography, explored in two distinct sections: Words, focused on ideas, interviews, and debate, and Pictures, offering an immersive photographic experience of artists’ projects and series. Columns include Studio Visit, The Collectors, Dispatches, Object Lessons and What Matters Now. The Summer issue, “São Paolo,” will report on the key photographers and photographic ideas circulating in the largest city in the largest country in South America.
