The conceptual frame for YET issue #8 is EDGES. With this term we want to refer to the state of the art in the field of artistic and personal research photography. The medium is facing an ever-growing technological evolution and an intense crossbreeding with other disciplines and techniques, while the photographic act is undergoing a general rethink in its concept, significance and application. This situation leads us to pose questions about photographyâ€™s nature and borders. How can we define photography, now that we cannot any longer consider it only as a merely mechanical representation of facts? At what point does photography give way to â€œpureâ€ art? Where is the line between photography, graphic, digital art, sculpture, painting, installation, performance placed? In this issue we will not try to give any answer - we will rather analyse the current situation through the examination of several possible and different interpretations, which span from the re-reading of the past to the post-photographic solutions.
In this issue we present the work of
Emile Barret, Corey Bartle-Sanderson, Regula Bochsler, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Nico Krijno, Zachary Norman, CÃ©dric Raccio, Jean Vincent Simonet, Myne SÃ¸e-Pedersen, Sheida Soleimani, Jules Spinatsch, Miguel Angel Tornero, Manon Wertenbroek
