Artdoc Magazine Issues

Voice of Nature

Issue nr.3 2022

The artists in this Artdoc issue #3, 2022, investigated the intrinsic value of our natural environment. Featured photographers are: Albarrán Cabrera, Doug and Mike Starn, Rebecca Najdowski, Mark Ruwedel and Gino Bühler. This Artdoc issue brings photo art that echoes the whispering voice of nature.

War and Peace

Issue nr.2 2022

Since the invasion of Russia into Ukraine, many people realize they are not acquainted with the photography of the eastern European country. Therefore, Artdoc dedicates this issue, War and Peace, to the prolific Ukrainian photographers, whose pictures are highly creative and sensitive. In this issue, we bring Maxim Dondyuk, Serhii Korovayny, Viktoria Sorochinski, Polina Polikarpova, Yelena Yemchuk, Oksana Parafeniuk and many others. They show pictures of bygone peacetimes and the present ongoing war. The art of photography, whether humanistic, staged, surrealistic or narrative, bridges people from different nations.

The Artivists

Issue nr.1 2022

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.

Female Visions

Issue nr.6 2021

In this last issue of the year, Artdoc Photography Magazine presents the vision of female photographers. Female photographers have a great capacity for empathy with which they metaphorically portray the world of emotions and personal experiences. Through the camera lens, they do not record factual reality but they show their expressive and subjective vision of the turbulent world. Featured in Issue 6 Female Visions: Rania Matar, Cecilia Reynoso, Katja Liebmann, Catherine Dovellos, Daria Dar, Maura Jamieson, Lara Gilks and Paula Rae Gibson.

Lens Based Art

Issue nr.5 2021

In this issue #5, Artdoc brings the photographer as the lens-based artist, who shows us the reality we tend to overlook. Michele Borzoni photographs the often hidden places where people work. Peter Bialobrzeski showed the chaos in the outskirts of Mumbai. Dario Mitidieri photographed Syrian families in an open-air studio. Chloe Sells constructs landscapes with layers of textures and colours to express her experience of nature. And the exhibition Lens Based Art shows the work of experimental photographers.

Invisible Realities

Issue nr.4 2021

In Artdoc Issue #4 2021we bring photographers who investigate our complex reality. French photographer Mathieu Asselin said this about his documentary project Monsanto: a photographic investigation: “You can have your own truth, but you cannot have your own facts.” Indian photographer Alakananda Nag delved into her city’s history, concluding that the Armenians could be the founding fathers of Calcutta. French photographer Florian Ruiz distorted his images as a metaphor for the environmental distortion of the radioactive sites in China. The Artdoc exhibition Documentary Stories shows different photographers who all engage in new ways of visual storytelling. In his essay, Koray Değirmenci discusses the validity of the manipulated digital image. We should read modern multi-layered photographs as metaphors of invisible realities.

Where is Paradise?

Issue nr.3 2021

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.

Art and Documentary

Issue nr.2 2021

Is documentary photography art? In Artdoc Issue #2-2021, we bring artistic approaches to documentary photography. First, Cuban photographer, Ricardo Miguel Hernández, shows that national identity is a construction of collected memories. Next, Chris Dorley-Brown digitally blended many shots of East London corners into realistic and natural photographs. Romanian photographer Roxana Savin staged her pictures of the monotonous life in a gated residence. Argentinian photographer Guillermo Srodek-Hart photographed the many old rural bars and shops in his country. Finally, Russian photojournalist Valery Melnikov documented the last Armenian inhabitants of the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh.

Empty Metropolis

Issue nr.1 2021

Artdoc Photo Magazine issue #1 2021 is dedicated to the city and all its manifold manifestations. Modern cities are full of signs, and sensitive photographers are dealing with these signs in their images. Due to the pandemic, cities became desolated during the many lockdowns and, therefore, even more enigmatic. Read and see our city special.

Documentary Storytelling

Issue nr.6 2020

Photography is increasingly seen as a form of visual storytelling, whether it is the photographer's personal story, told in metaphors and symbols, or a story about the social and political world told through the lives of people in the remotest corners of the world. This issue of Artdoc brings famous, seasoned and award-winning storytellers who all made documentary stories about our dire world. We feature Alec Soth, Bryan Schutmaat, Yann Mingard, Federico Borella, and Martin Thaulow.

Human Stories

Issue nr.5 2020

In Artdoc Photo Magazine Issue #5 2020, we bring stories that treat different aspects of human life. Andres Serrano photographed homeless people in the streets of Brussels. Gregg Segal shows children from all over the world surrounded by the food they eat. Nelson Morales brings his project about muxes, people considered to be a third gender. The exhibition Human Beings, not Human Skins, is an answer to the global phenomenon of racism. The essay The Selfie as a Neoliberal Commodity explains why we take selfies.

Anthropocene Epoch

Issue nr.4 2020

The Anthropocene is the epoch in which humans have a profound influence on the climate. Since awareness of the pollution of the environment has arisen, a movement has emerged that practices a critical look at invisible pollution by humans. In this Artdoc issue, we bring the work of photographers concerned with climate and environmental developments, like water constructions, drought, mining and oil spills in pristine landscapes. In this issue we feature Claudius Schulze, Jasper Bastian, Nadia Bseiso, Igor Tereshkov and Ellen Jantzen.

The Essence of Photography

Issue nr.3 2020

We have the honour to bring in Issue #3 of Artdoc Photo Magazine three protagonists in modern photography: Stephen Shore, John Riddy and Roger Ballen. The article "The eidos of photography” analyses the book Camera Lucida of philosopher Roland Barthes.

Japanese Garden

Issue nr.2 2020

In Artdoc Photo Magazine Issue #2 2020, we bring a mix of photography about our complex relationship with nature. Wendi Schneider and Ali Shokri bring a homage to the trees. Naohiro Ninomiya and Jennifer Graham show poetic and layered photos of nature and birds. As a special feature, you can read what Sebastião Salgado says about his magnum opus Genesis. In our group exhibition, the Japanese Garden we bring photographers around the theme of reflection and tranquillity of nature. You can also read about the theory of the photograph as a metaphor, based on the theory of Minor White.‍

Beyond Aesthetics

Issue nr.1 2020

In issue #1 2020, we bring photographers for whom the image is a way of expressing the provocative, abrasive and inquisitive relationship with the world. The Norwegian Ole Marius Joergensen made Hopper like scenes, depicting his melancholic feeling of never arriving at the goal. The Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf uses photography as a medium to tell stories that connect his inner life with the world around him. His cinematic images, representing emotions of modern times, are aesthetic and confronting at the same time. In Photo Culture we bring an introduction to the semiology of photography, the theory that analyses the often-hidden way in which images communicate. And our online exhibition Beyond Aesthetics shows the vision on beauty of ten experimental photographers.
