Fisheye Magazine #55
The autumn Fisheye has arrived, with its collection of images and stories to discover. With her series Santa Barbara, Diana Markosian tells us in the form of a soap opera how her mother left her husband and her native Russia with her two children (her and her brother) to join the American dream discovered on the small screen. Julien Lombardi takes us to Mexico through astonishing visual experiments. You will then dive into the world of conspiracy theorists who establish correlations between 5G and covid-19. A strange theory whose contagion is spreading on social networks. Alice Pallot took an interest in the green algae that pollute the beaches of Brittany. She interviewed researchers and environmental activists to come up with a fascinating work that unfolds in several directions. The current war in Ukraine gives rise to a chilling Carnet de balles which brings together Ukrainian ballerinas who have taken refuge in Poland. Finally, Sara Punt offers us ravishing Bodies and Graphics in elegant black and white that revisit our anatomy with grace and poetry. In all, 60 pages of portfolios that will not leave you indifferent.
Not forgetting the latest news on images: the new exhibitions at the MEP, the opening of the Festival du Regard and the Photaumnales, the Rolling Paper event which presents the most cutting-edge editions of contemporary photography… You can also preview the book that Fisheye is publishing with Agence France-Presse, a 350-page work which brings together the nuggets of the silver years that a dozen personalities decipher: Tardi, Alain Mabanckou, Christophe Ono-dit-Biot, Élise Lucet, Karine Tuil, Jean Gaumy, Didier Daeninckx… And much more!
