Issue: 2018.2


This issue’s theme, Photography, is an exciting look at how the medium can be balanced between the worlds of traditional photography and printmaking. The methodology of photography, light creating images through photosensitive films and emulsions, is the basis of collaboration and manipulation between mediums. Today, a photograph could live its entire life on digital platforms or as a physical printed object. A photograph can intersect printmaking through digital layers printed via large format inkjet printers, or negatives and positives exposed onto a silkscreen or a photolitho/etching/polymer plate.
