In Artdoc Magazine Issue #1 2023, we bring photographers who do not replicate the world but reshape it with concepts, abstractions, and visions. Daniel Gordon constructs paper-cut tableaux that transform reality. Shinya Masuda creates still lifes with decaying flowers and fruits, symbolising the passage of time. Nadezda Nikolova makes abstract landscapes with wet collodion plates, translating her spiritual experience in nature. Our exhibition, Conceptual Photography, is a collection of evocative and metaphorical images.
