Primal Sight, published by Gnomic Book, a collection of works by 146 artists, and essays by David Campany and Gregory Eddi Jones, surveys the state of contemporary black-and-white photography.

This project includes the works of intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and intersectional artists, each questioning the perceived order of things. These interrogations center on issues of race, gender, philosophy, and praxis, subverting traditional notions of black-and-white imagery into something feral and queered, possessed of previously unimagined possibilities.

These works embody a mastery of what is strengthened or weakened by the light inside them. Beyond our individual differences, there exist universal commonalities in the ways humans try to make sense of the world; as our fluency with visual vocabulary changes, these images change accordingly.

What does queerness look like beyond the body? n e w f l e s h, a project published by Gnomic Book in September 2019, will challenge conventional notions of gender and identity studies. A collection of works by sixty-eight artists, and essays by Charlotte Cotton and Ashley McNelis, n e w f l e s h hopes to reclaim certain ideas of what queer is capable of.

All too often, the body is used as a form of control. The works in n e w f l e s h  ascend peculiarity and convention. It’s by removing titles and preconceptions that these works question the expectations around photography that deals with the body. It’s my hope that making room to question the status quo in this way will lead to new paths of equality and interactions between us as individuals. New concepts and conversations may be hard, but it is time to start having them.

The artists in n e w f l e s h abstract the subjects and materials they use. These works embody a mastery of what is possible in front of the camera, as well as technologically once the photo has been made. These images force us to look beyond the familiar, so that we may see them for what they could become.

Through the works of the three featured artists and an essay reflecting on these works, this issue of the THERE, THERE quarterly will venerate growth, myth, the surreal, and the lived experiences of the artists included.

 

The THERE, THERE quarterly is a serial publishing project by theretherenow. Each issue contains a curated selection of photographs by three photographers organized around a unique risograph color space. All issues are 10” x 12.5” and come unbound in a risograph printed bellyband. the THERE, THERE quarterly is printed in a hand-numbered limited edition on French Paper Co. 65C paper stock.

The artists in the THERE, THERE quarterly, issue seven, embody and extend their subjects and materials. It's up to viewers to push ourselves to see the resolution amongst these works. Only together, with those who don't look like you, will it all become something. Looking past our expectations will be key in moving forward.

Close your eyes and imagine where queerness lives. running to the edge of the world explores the locale of queerness and the realities of it's intricate and boundless home in our contemporary world. This collection of works by sixty-two artists, and afterword by Kelsey Sucena, will rearrange preconceptions and expectations that generally cluster around hegemonic queer ideology.

Does queerness only live in your head or does it have a physical home? Is it in a room, or a building, a city block or a town? There are no limits to these bodies and these ideals. Queer folx are everywhere. We're living in a world that is yearning to get out, to get away, to build and reform. Queerness lives outside of big cities. It wanders, strays, and makes homes in places where there are thriving communities and neighborhoods. 

 

The artists included in running to the edge of the world were pooled form an open call banded around this idea of what lives outside the trappings and conventions of queerness. This questions is as literal and physical as it is deeply theoretical and conceptual. The works of running to the edge of the world run the gambit of genres of photography and together, in this one collection, proclaim with a single voice that there is no need to view photography as separated or those who make it.
