OVER Journal is a new periodical publication that proposes its readers a more wholesome, honest, and critical observation and enjoyment of photography. Publishing commissioned texts and artworks alongside interviews and opinion pieces, it aims to create the ideal channel for an open and global discussion about the context in which the discipline sits, and not just about the output of artists, exhibiting venues, and publishing houses.
OVER Journal critically focuses on aspects often overlooked that affect the discipline, zooming out to observe the whole scene, to analyse what exactly is happening, what power relationships are at play. It is about preventing the repetition of obsolete and flawed structures, as much as highlighting the work of those who constructively are expanding what we still call photography into new horizons. More than a portfolio magazine, it is a space for reflection on new practices, new ways of thinking, shining a light wherever needed.
Issue 1 features artists Becks Butler, David Farrell, Eva Kreuger, Francesca Catastini, Garry Loughlin, Guerrilla Girls, Heather Agyepong, Hiro Tanaka, Mark McGuinness, Shia Conlon, Teresa Eng, Theo Ellison, Vera Ryklova, and Yvette Monahan. It includes texts by Aidan Kelly-Murphy, Alison Nordström, Amelie Schüle, Anna Ehrenstein, Benedetta Casagrande, Duncan Wooldridge, Erik Vroons, Gloria Oyarzabal, Jörg Colberg, Julia Gelezova, Natasha Christia, Yining He, and an interview by Marion Hislen.
