C Photo 08
Glass Hero, the eighth edition of C Photo, explores the role of photography in counter and popular cultures. In this issue, C Photo presents a mixture of photography and graphic design, going beyond the normal reach of the publication in order to more accurately reflect the visual landscape of these movements.
