Two Italian Rascals #1

In 2022, paper seems to have become a luxury.

So why start a printed magazine?

We live in an overly digitalized world where images have been commoditized at the expense of dismissing the effort that goes on behind crafting a visual work.

We fall prey to an endless, detrimental scrolling that leaves little space for conscious reflection.

Creating a printed magazine is a way to slow down, a way to establish a more intimate connection with the artists, a way to complement images with words to discover the deeper meaning of photography.

In this first issue, we explore photography as a way to cope with grief and as a way to reconnect with a dying father; photography as a tool for creative survival, and as a way to find beauty in the unusual; photography as a way to preserve what is disappearing, and as a way to inspire one’s work in other visual disciplines; photography as a way to indulge in nostalgia, and as a way to travel to parallel worlds built to escape reality.

In this issue:
