In this issue
In issue #5 2020 of Artdoc Photography Magazine, we bring stories that treat many different aspects of human life and its cares.
The American photographer Gregg Segal made a visually expressive contribution about the food we eat, focusing on children. His project Daily Bread shows children from all over the world surrounded by the foods they eat in a week’s time. The worldwide diffusion of fast food became painfully apparent.
We are not all fortunate to have a comfortable home. Famous photo-artist Andres Serrano made a project, Denizens of Brussels, for which he photographed homeless people in the streets of Brussels. “I am interested in the suffering of humanity,” says Serrano in our interview.
Mexican photographer Nelson Morales shows us his project about ‘muxes’, people considered to be a third gender. Because they endure lots of discriminations, Morales’ project is an act of liberation.
We have all families, but they can restrict personal freedom. In her work The concept of family, Turkish photographer Çağıl Erkay investigates the impact of her family, questioning its effects on her identity.
The essay The Selfie as a Neoliberal Commodity treats different aspects of taking selfies. Humans of the world, we are already united.
Artdoc is an international online magazine dedicated to the world of photography. We aim at connecting the community of photography, including photographers, publishers, museums, galleries, collectors, art students, and every interested person in the world of lens-based arts. We believe that photography is the most relevant global plastic form of art. Photography is a tool to communicate about the world that surrounds us and our feelings about it. Photography is the visual storytelling medium of our time, and it's deeply pervaded in the veins of our society and culture. The art of photography is not limited to the aesthetics of the images themselves but encompasses the story behind them. The name Artdoc refers to our vision of photography. The former distinction between art photography and documentary photography is not relevant anymore. In recent years, the two fields have merged, and contemporary photography is a blend of mirrors and windows.
