Fisheye Magazine #21
Africa revealed by itself
We’ve been circling around African photography for a while now without really managing to find the right angle. Obviously, since Fisheye’s inception, we’ve done a lot of articles on the subject, but it seemed to deserve more. The creativity, energy and talent of African photographers are obvious. Beyond the founding fathers, notably Malians or South Africans, it is a whole new generation that displays its style, its point of view and its aspirations in a global impulse that celebrates the multiple influences of the continent. With this dossier, we have tried to share our view of this fundamental movement without trying to be encyclopedic.
In this issue 21 with its increased pagination (148 pages), you will also find a focus on Polish photography, a report on the Valparaiso festival, several portfolios, from adolescence seen by Steeve Iuncker to the situation in Syria seen by four Syrian artists. Not to mention all our usual sections: music, video, exhibitions, books, politics, education… plus a new “cooking” page.
