issue 02 presents a portfolio of work that demonstrates not only the influence that film has on many photographers, but also the reciprocal visual discourse that exists between both mediums.

we hope that issue 02 offers you some food for thought and a fresh way of looking at photography. as always, we want you the readers to be as much a part of our selection process as possible so if you have any suggestions
