Special Issue #2 – Digital Edition
This second special issue of Fisheye is nothing like the first issue devoted last year to Théo Gosselin and his band of photographers. Entirely devoted to black and white, under its technical and aesthetic aspects, you will find different themes studied by Sylvie Hugues and Jean-Christophe Béchet, former editors of Réponses Photo magazine, to whom we entrusted the editing of this issue.
Approaches to the “great masters” of photography such as Paul Strand, Otto Steinert, Ansel Adams, W. Eugene Smith and Sebastião Salgado, to the exploration of the work of Luis Baylón, Bernard Cantié and Éric Bouvet, to the discovery of young talents such as Yusuf Sevinçli and Erwan Morère, represented by the gallery Les Filles du Calvaire, without forgetting an investigation on the traces of Vivian Maier in the Champsaur, it is to an unedited journey in the world of black and white photography that we invite you here.
An appointment on the planet No color which makes a step aside from the editorial line of Fisheye. A way to explore the different facets of photography through the specificities of black and white, its relationship to digital, and more broadly on its insolent vitality. This carte blanche given freely to Sylvie Hugues and Jean-Christophe Béchet allows us to discover some photographers that we would not have published. And it is precisely because Fisheye wishes to keep a wide view on the photographic creation that we are happy to propose you this stroll, inevitably high in color.
