Relief Journal Vol. 1

a journal that invites responses from practitioners to themes that are underpinned by an ongoing investigation into the role of photography in the contemporary social and political ether. The first volume consisted of three issues, ‘Class’, ‘Drift’ and ‘Surface’, themes that were over simplified versions of key philosophical terms ‘Subjectivity’, ‘Dérive’ and ‘Ontology’. The journal is an intentional mix of light and heavy observations on each subject.
