In 2019, The Eyes celebrates its 10thissue and invites Taous R. Dahmani, photography historian, to think on the theme “Crossings“, in echo to the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
In this 10th issue, The Eyes delves into the notion of border with an emancipating outlook : it is about exploring what is a border, a wall, and in the end to overcome the most definitive aspects and discover how borders also are the places to free oneself.
The selected portfolios for this issue explore each in their own way the means of crossing what restricts, whether it be by migrating, traveling, or through the culture, or even just by looking differently at difficulties. Whatever the means to free oneself from walls or borders are, these experiences always demonstrate a faith in humankind to find its way to freedom.
The Bibliomania section compiles books reviews, interview with the artists, meetings with collectors, an expert view in the photobook world.
This issue will provide an important interview where Rémi Coignet meets Edmund Clark, a british photographer, in order to talk about his work linked to incarceration and the war against terrorism. At the same time we will be going through some photobooks publications of his : Still life killing time ; Guantanamo, If light goes out ; Negative Publicity ; Reflections of my shadows.
