Artdoc Issue #1 2022, The Artivists, brings the views of artivist photographers about topics like justice, environment and genocide. We present two major projects of Gideon Mendel about the devastating effect of climate change. In addition, we show the work of Jan Banning, who is fighting for the release of an innocent prisoner. Barry Salzman visualises traumas of modern-day holocausts, photographing landscapes at different sites of genocide. Finally, Nicolas Boyer shows the dark side of everyday life in Japan. In the face of the recent horrific developments, the work of honest photographers remains highly relevant.
