In this issue, we explore the idea of search beyond known limits. Something that since the origins of humanity has been the engine of physical, archaeological and geographical discoveries. We wanted to dedicate one of the photographic dossiers to the first trips to the Pole: how did all those adventurers portray such visually homogeneous landscapes? Journalist Jacinto Antón's text about pioneers like Roald Amundsen or Fridtjof Nansen gives us all the keys. We also include archaeological photography: that one which, during the s. XIX and coinciding with the boom of the expeditions, reflected the interest in civilizations unknown until then, but it was also consolidating the language and technique of the photographic medium. Pilar Rubio Remiro's text analyzes this issue from a gender perspective. And from ground to air: photography has always accompanied trips to space, being an essential part to give astronauts legitimacy (and credibility). Photographers like Joan Fontcuberta or Aleydis Rispa somehow question these supposed "ontological" truths of space photography. But also in the water there are many topics: not in vain, the sea is a common place for curiosity and risk. The researcher Isabel Soler takes us through that “open hell”, accompanied by images of Teresa Villarreal or Manel Esclusa, among others.
Now more than ever we need to rediscover the world. We invite you to do it through a journey to the past ... in order to imagine the future.
