C Photo Volume 1
Edited by Elena Ochoa Foster. Text by Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Thomas Weski, Peter Galassi, Tom Ford, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Nobuyoshi Araki, Marina Abramovic, et al.
Ivory Press' new C Photo series is a five-year project that follows on the heels of C Photo magazine, departing from its predecessor's format by structuring each issue thematically, with guest editorships from various internationally renowned curators. This inaugural issue, edited by Elena Ochoa Foster, is devoted to early and first works by some of the biggest names in photography. These fledgling projects show budding artists striking out to discover a visual language of their own, and range from documentary photography to photography as a record of conceptual and performance art pieces. It includes works by such venerable international photographers as Nobuyoshi Araki, Danny Lyon, Marina Abramovic, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Boris Mikhailov, William Eggleston, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jeff Wall, Helmut Newton, Joan Fontcuberta and many more. Each of the portfolios is accompanied by texts from the photographers themselves or from well-known photography critics that contextualize and elaborate on the works.
