#19 — The crisis issue



So there's a crisis going on, that much we know. Not so much because of the affect it has had on our disposable income, but more because we (read the capitalist Western world) are constantly talking about it. There have been crises in the world ever since humankind can remember. Food world ever since humankind can remember. Food crises, economic crises and climate crises. It's only now that the financial crisis is hitting our pockets that the alarm bells have started ringing. Self-involved? We'll leave that up to you to decide.

This edition features subjects from past to present that convey what a crisis means, both for the individual and a country as a whole. Photographers highlighted in this issue include: Henry Lehman, Vincent van Wijngaard, Augusto Pinochet, Joost van den Broek, Dorothea Lange, Otto Snoek, Robert Frank, Chris Fillip, Ruud Sies among many others.
