Summer is on its way! For many, this season delivers a chance to escape the daily routine. People seek all kinds of refuge: they pack their bags and leave, or they remain and withdraw into the plethora of loopholes available nearby or online. Escaping can certainly be fun, but it’s not always easy. For this issue, we have been seeking to both celebrate and commemorate the various aspects of getting away or breaking out.
We are happy to present the brand new project Cimarron by renowned French photographer Charles Fréger. We’re also the first to show the latest series by Marguerite Bornhauser in print. Besides this, we’ve interviewed Erik Madigan Heck, whose work graces the cover of our regular edition.
GUP #61 also presents the work of Stephen Gill, Petra Katanic, Brendan Pattengale, Luis Alberto Rodriguez, Leah Schretenthaler, Alec Soth, Rafael Tanaka Monzó, Esther Teichmann, Joost Termeer and Rob Wetzer.
Furthermore, summer is the festival season. Our Event Guide is once again full of the most interesting current and upcoming photography events, and the Book Guide presents the prettiest new photo books.
