‘Foam:International Photography Magazine – The Mythical Issue #51: Seer/Believer’
Foam International Photography Magazine
300 x 230 mm
The 51st issue is themed around ‘the mythical’, a subject that has played an important role in visual arts throughout history. The seer is a visionary, creating ways of understanding or framing things that at first appear otherworldly, impossible or irrational. Their interpretations enter our systems of belief and understanding. Who is the author: the seer who creates the stories or the believer who adopts and acts upon them? The photographer has the ability to transform and create connections through envisioning stories from ancient times to contemporary life. Through a process of endless repetition and re-interpretation it becomes a timeless given: a myth existing at the junction where fact and fiction collide. And at the end, we believe what we see, or do we?
