IMAGINATION: Alejandro León Cannock writes about the role photography has in imagining a better world. A manifesto for photographers who work collaboratively. Claire Anscomb shows the many choices that photographers make, and says that working within these choices gives play to the imagination, something that could be true of AI genertated images as well
PORTFOLIOS: Ryan Moule’s The Cloud and its Shadow are derived from videos uploaded to the internet with no views and no metadata. These unseen images have been made into ambrotypes, transforming the most intangible digital traces into physical objects. Sarah Jones’ new work Glass Doors are studio based images of flowers, vitrines and other singular objects photographed in a dense black setting. They refer to mythic mirror worlds without colour. Justin Partyka has been photographing in rural France where he finds surreal residue of the past alongside a dream-like present.
