Let’s not play this too safe. It’s easy to talk about photography like it’s just one thing, but that’s not really an accurate picture. Not anymore. There’s lens-less photography, there’s camera-less photography, there are photographs manipulated far beyond the ‘moment’ they were captured, there are artists who work with photographs without ever taking a single shot themselves. Art is meant to push, and within the field of photography, there’s a lot of heated pushing and shoving.
GUP#48, Mixing It Up, is filled with images and projects from artists that are pushing photography's definition, from lens-less photography to camera-less photography, to artists who work with found imagery. The issue also features an interview with Noémie Goudal by Nora Uitterlinden and a long-read article by Editor-at-Large Erik Vroons on interfering with photographs aesthetically to arrive at a new truth.
