These places are not only factories of beautiful and curious pictures, they also embody one of the basic concepts of the idea behind photography: representation of ourselves. The representation of what we want to be, of what we want to show of ourselves to others. The studio is the space of dreams and illusions, a place to imagine and imagine oneself otherwise. Photography is the democratizing element of the world of creation, putting within everyone's reach the possibility of transforming representation itself and therefore representation of the real, if anything can be real, radically altering the idea of the world, especially the idea of ourselves and the other as complementary, equal or different.
The artists featured in this issue: Catherine Leutenegger, Barbara Kasten, Pierre et Gilles, Pablo Pérez-Minguez, Ben Judd, Juergen Teller, Helmut Newton, Clare Strand, Adrian Paci, Arab Image Foundation, Akram Zaatari, Malick Sidibé, Seydou Keïta, Adama Kouyaté, Thomas Dworzak, Philip Kwame Apagya, Lee To Sang, Samuel Fosso... are the representatives of a boundless whole, and this is our tribute to some pioneers who took photography and aesthetics, the concept of the construction of identity, the creation of archive as an idea of essential accumulation, much farther than any of them individually or all of them together could have ever imagined.
