C International Photo Magazine issue 8
New, never used. Spanish Japanese. The eighth edition of C International Photo Magazine explores the role of photography within counter- and popular cultures. From Rock and Roll and Elvis in the 1950s to the Punk revolution of the 1970s, to today where most counter-cultural heroes seem to be weak or unrecognisable due to the constant fragmentation of information and the economic pressure faced by young people, C Photo Issue 8 examines the constant and unpredictable evolution of movements, which, to a great extent, drew their inspiration from the struggles of minorities. Going beyond the normal reach of the publication and in order to more accurately reflect the visual landscape of popular- and counter cultures, C Photo presents a mixture of photography and graphic design in Issue 8.
