Water is as broad and vast as photography itself can be. This issue celebrates the beauty and vital role water plays in our lives. It brings into focus the value that is added to this liquid, either as a ritualistic cleanser or as a forceful means of feeding the political and commercial interests of our time. If we can speak of a point of orientation or inquiry in this fluidity of images, meanings and critical thoughts, it is our triple axis of water as carrier, barrier, and source. With portfolios by Boris Mikhailov, Nadav Kander, Boomoon, Elspeth Diederix among many others.
