Welcome to The Eyes n0 2, more visual, more punchy and even more innovative. What’s evolving? Essen- tially what we want to share with you!
We are strengthening our European commitment. Photography is the essential way to observe, understand and remember. Whether it is the clashes between thousands of unemployed and poor Bosnians and their police, or the live-fire shooting by Ukrainian police in Kiev against EU supporters demonstrating – nearly a hundred dead and hundreds injured – or the homophobia of Russian leaders in Sochi, photographers alert us and speak to us. Through images and in-depth texts, The Eyes deciphers Europe and its present history. As in this issue 2, which questions the rise of populism on the eve of the European elections or invites us to take a behind-the-scenes trip to Sarajevo almost twenty years after the 1992 siege.
We also share with you the magic of photo-graphics and the great events that bring it to life. In L’autre Cartier-Bresson, The Eyes offers an unexpected image of the trajectory of the great photo-graph exhibited in Paris at the Centre Georges Pompidou. In Inside London, encounters with Tate curator Simon Baker and photographer Stephen Gill feed our curiosity about the British capital, the guest of this second issue.
Together, we explore and invent the new practices proposed to photography and the press by “connected paper”! The Eyes n° 2 is enriched with original experiences in augmented reality – 3D vision devices, videos or book browsing – and offers free access to a complementary iPad version.
Everything you ever wanted to know about Eu- rope and photography is in The Eyes. In a common thirst to understand the movements of photography and the European future, we offer you, beyond the magazine, cultural events* and invite you to join The Eyes Club to accompany our reflections and ensure our independence.
