In this Issue
In many parts of the world, humans are looking for a better life in political freedom, social justice, and happiness. In Artdoc Issue #3-2021, we bring stories of defectors, refugees and survivors. Tim Franco photographed North Korean defectors in Seoul. Charlotte Schmitz took images of refugees arriving at the Greek islands. In Peru, Max Cabello Orcasitas captured the grief of the survivors of the battles between the government and the Shining Path. Sébastien Cuvelier searched for Paradise in Iran and found walled gardens. Finally, Simon Norfolk photographed the struggle against global warming in the Swiss glaciers.
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.
