We are delighted to announce that issue 14 of our online magazine is now live. To view it, please go to: www.1000wordsmag.com
This issue is dedicated to the memory of Rosina Darch (1924-2012).
For this Autumn edition we have chosen the theme of ‘Murmur’. Silent vibrations and fugitive apparitions, the imagery showcased here derives its brilliance in the shape of its understatement, and the art at its core. Artists who translate lived experience into a pattern of photography that preserves its vitality, drawing out psychological complexities and subtleties. They are storytellers, yet their voices are calm, measured and appropriate.
Exploring that which connects and concerns the photography we have brought together, Louise Clements reports back on Eva Stenram’s ‘gently feminist’ exhibition which formed part of The Discovery Award at this year’s Les Rencontres d’Arles; also plucked from the French festival is the ethereal and melancholic work of Belarus photographer Alexandra Catiere whose series Here, Beyond The Mists is accompanied by a text from Natasha Christia; Lucy Davies of The Daily Telegraph describes a path through the work of recent RCA graduate Regine Petersen in particular Find a Falling Star, a project about Meteorites and everything; Brad Feuerhelm meets Esther Teichmann and bring us an insightful interview with the German-American artist, looking at the origins of fantasy and desire and how these are bound to experiences of loss and representation.
Elsewhere, Anouk Kruithof serves up a lively (inte)review with the formidable artist duo Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin on the occasion of their latest photobook, a collection of Polaroids that ‘forms an intimate and imperfect inventory of their fifteen-year collaboration’, produced in collaboration with Self Publish Be Happy; and finally, Gerry Badger discusses Paul Graham’s The Present, his much anticipated volume which explores both photography’s relationship with time, the ‘present’, and the nature of photographic narrative, or in this case, with non-narrative.
In our dedicated Books section, David Moore lays bare the facts about Lise Safarti’s She, Michael Grieve gives his verdict on Soho, the latest in an ongoing series of city studies by Anders Petersen while Brad Feuerhelm ponders the authenticity of Nicholas Comment’s Mexico City Waltz.
Once again, 1000 thanks to our photographers and writers, editorial and art departments as well as of course our advertisers and funders for making this magazine possible.
