October 2007 – April 2008
Edited by Gordon MacDonald and featuring folios by Paul Graham, Polly Braden, Taryn Simon, Daniel Stier and Hannah Starkey, Issue 9 of Photoworks explores the shifting and problematic role of the photograph as document. Our forum discussion takes a critical look at the Magnum photo agency, Julian Stallabrass interviews Phillip Jones-Griffiths, and Geoff Dyer takes a look at the work of Tod Papageorge. Issue 9 also comes with a thirty-two page newspaper supplement, No Ohla Da Rua, showing photographs produced by street children from Belo Horizonte, Brazil’s third largest city. The project is contextualised in the magazine with an essay by Joachim Schmid.
