EDITORIAL by ANNALISA CEOLIN
VISIONS is a new web magazine by ****contrasted gallery on flickr. VISIONS is periodic, thematic and multimedia. This Number 2 is a project curated by Annalisa Ceolin. VISIONS is an idea of Manuel Diumenjó.
For this Issue , I have chosen the theme “BEYOND PHOTOGRAPHY“, so were invited authors and authoresses whose research touches on the boundaries of photography.You will neither find expected, attractive, images nor formal homologated styles among them. Each author has a strong personnality, its own DNA, sometimes immediate to understand and sometimes complex and hermetic. There is a “common thread” that connects all photographs: introspection. The photographers express themselves, their identity and their inner life, through images that arouse emotions, but also misunderstandings, enigmas, complexity, ambiguity. A formal richness and of a not common content.
You will find conceptual, minimalist images , similar to the painting. Distorted, abstract, graphic, mysterious pictures. So thank to these authors who have allowed us to share their photos, their research which is not attributable to a simple form of expression. In this issue of VISIONS 2 you will recognize their life and soul, the most hidden feelings, fears, their past and future. These authors came to their most intimated essence, are just themselves and their being is expressed in the images that you will find in VISIONS 2 and that I wish you love and appreciate as it has been for me .So thank you all with great esteem and affection. Special thanks to Roberto.
