Fisheye Magazine #20
Documentary photography: Let’s get to the stories
This 20th issue of Fisheye brings you a feature on documentary photography, a genre that falls between photojournalism and fine art, with a history and writing in motion. A name that is very present today, that can be found on the posters of festivals and galleries. Fisheye tries to shed light on this part of photography by giving a voice to authors, critics and curators, and by going to see what is happening on social networks.
This 20th edition will also take you to a panorama of Belgium photography, for a focus on this small country with great talents. You will also go to Switzerland to take a look at the Images Vevey festival, before going to Hong Kong to discover the images of the new generation presented at Photaumnales, and to make a detour to China for a rereading of the Cultural Revolution. Finally, you can dive back into the underground Paris of the 1980s, make a detour to the neighborhoods of the Paris region to meet new entrepreneurs, or be dazzled by L’Indifférence des étoiles, the discovery portfolio by Julien Mauve.
This issue also marks the opening of the Fisheye Gallery. A space dedicated to contemporary authors with a strong personal universe. The very good reception you gave us in Arles this summer, with thousands of visitors and several dozen prints sold, pushes us to continue this experimentation that completes our magazine. More and more of you are following us on social networks, on our website, in newsstands or by subscription, and we hope that this craze will also materialize at the Fisheye Gallery in Paris, which will open its doors on September 29th.
