C International Photo Magazine 08: Glass Hero

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. This issue includes: Peter Saville, the collection of English artist Damien Hirst, a selection of album covers and sleeves from poet John Giorno’s project “Dial-a-Poem Poets”, Scope/Portfolio – Adelman, Bob/Borland, Polly/Boullet, Victor/Clark, Larry/Cross, Brian/Cyr, Merri/Davidson, Bruce/Epstein, Mitch/Fuchs, Daniel and Geo/Horgan, Susie J./ Insect, Paul/Oliver, Vaughan/Peterson, Charles/Ruge, Katja/Saccenti, Timothy/Spencer, Ewen, a retrospective to Andy Warhol, Oscar Marine.
