Press Release

VIDVINKEL DIGITAL - a new digital photo magazine from Sweden


VIDVINKEL DIGITAL is a biannual publication of photography, published only digital. It is based in Stockholm and features photographers from mainly Sweden but also other countries. The publication offers a gallery of contemporary photography in close relation to theory, art, politics, fashion and storytelling. The ambition is to display a interesting selection of the contemporary photography, both intellectually and aesthetically. Every issue has a theme or question. VIDVINKEL DIGITAL wants to collect, sort, read, make new translations and create new contexts.

Vidvinkel Digital #1 has the topic “Man and Nature”.

- I think the pictorial interaction between man and nature is interesting. I see models hanging out in trees with a pair of jeans from a branch. I see documentary photographers spending years to make projects about our destructive consumption. I see nature photographed as art. I see misunderstandings and funny scenes with people setting up meetings with nature as if it were a lunch-date or a cinema picture.

- Man and nature are clearly not best friends. We hardly know each other at all. Some scientist say we are totally fucked if we don’t stop with everything we are doing right know and move back to the cave we came from, and some say we’re okay if we just care a little bit more. We don’t know what we are dealing with anymore. That’s why it’s so interesting.
