Hotshoe Issue 209: An Emotional Landscape
Corner slightly creased
Issue number 209 of Hotshoe, founded in 1977 and one of the world’s leading photography magazines, concerns itself with our relationship to the landscapes and environments that surround us. In various photographic series and short Q&A-style interviews, the magazine explores our role in nature, our connections with the beings that surround, and the interdependence that links ourselves to the rest of the world.
The contributing artists include Rinko Kawauchi, Stephen Gill, Takashi Homma, Jack Davison, Masahisa Fukase, Trent Parke, Mimi Plumb, P Guilmoth, Jem Southam, Michael Lundgrem, Gregory Crewdson, Robbie Lawrence, and Yana Wernicke. The issue concludes with a short-story by Cal Brocket (inspired by Robin Schwartz’ photographs of a chimpanzee) as well as reviews of four recent photobooks (“Small Myths” by Mikiko Hara, “Blind Spot” by Julie van der Vaart, “The Islanders/Gil Isolani” by Alys Tomlinson, and “Some Say Ice” by Alessandra Sanguinetti).
