There has always been—and always will be—a unique and complex relationship between the moving and the still image. Like film, photography grants the artist permission to create a new reality, to compose a visual narrative for its viewers to become lost in. so when the opportunity arose to work in collaboration with the Jameson Dublin international film festival, we jumped at the chance. our second issue celebrates work inspired by film and cinema in all its guises.
Issue 02 presents a portfolio of work that demonstrates not only the influence that film has on many photographers, but also the reciprocal visual discourse that exists between both mediums.
When it came to choosing our featured artist for this issue, we could think of no better photographer to illustrate filmic practises through a single image than Gregory Crewdson. Crewdson’s marvellous and sometimes unsettling depictions of contemporary American suburbia, his cinematic lighting, combined with his exquisite composition and attention to detail make his work a genuine visual treat.
