Issue #5 / Near

In this issue the photographic aspects of emotional and physical closeness are examined. What does the world look like if it is physically up close? How can photography capture an emotional nearness and do justice to feelings of security and humanity? Nowadays, many would have us believe, we live in a `global village' where distances are as good as obsolete and everything is within easy reach. But what consequences does this have for what is actually close by, for the social cohesion of a community and for the way we treat our fellow creatures? How complex is the actual relationship between physical and emotional nearness?
