Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the release of issue 15 of Prefix Photo magazine. Addressing the theme of spectral light, editor Scott McLeod has written: How does one write about the significance of light for photography, when it is not merely significant but integral to photography, as it is to vision and, indeed, to life itself? Bring the subject of light under consideration and, with great speed, it unfolds, spiralling endlessly into ever-expanding fields. The study of light becomes inseparable from that of time, space, history, memory, mourning and death. The issue features essays on a host of photo, media and installation artists, including:

Janine Marschessault on the radical humanism of Edward Burtynskys Manufactured Landscapes and Edward Steichens The Family of Man.

A Dazibao intervention, Out of Space: Photography and the Sculptural Imagination, featuring portfolios of five diverse artists with text by Susan Edelstein.

Maia-Mari Sutnik on Spring Hurlbuts series Deuil, which uses cremated remains to produce formations reminiscent of constellations, galaxies and other celestial phenomena.

Other contributors include Fadi Abou-Rihan, Albano Afonso, Edward Burtynsky, John Duncan, Julio Grinblatt, Spring Hurlbut, Tania Kitchell, Nestor Krüger, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Sarah Pickering, Daniel von Sturmer, Erwin Wurm, Amon Yariv and more.
Prefix Photo is available by subscription and in fine bookstores and newsstands in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Singapore and China.
