scopio Bookstore


This second issue of the first cycle of scopio magazine, entitled Aboveground City, focuses on the intrinsic richness of several public spaces of our cities,. The  elements and features of city space which many times are considered fragmentary, trivial, or hidden, are given a new visibility by the different photography projects and series. Thus, it seeks to publish authors who explore photography in a way that enables viewers to question themselves about what they are seeing. This may not be an easy task and, as Brian Ulrich points out in the book of Joerg Colberg, Conscientious Extended, “It’s a hard thing to take a picture of something we look at and do every day and do it in a way that will ask to be scrutinized”. However, many of the works present in this issue of scopio Magazin certainly belong to this category.
