Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the release of issue 14 of Prefix Photo magazine. Addressing the theme of time passages, editor Scott McLeod has written: Time is both one of our most profound philosophical concepts and a prosaic, if pervasive, part of our daily lives. Contemporary artists prompt us to consider time in its various manifestations, be they profound or absurd. The issue features essays on a host of photo, media and installation artists, including:

Heather Diack on Martha Roslers influential series Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful. Originally addressing the Vietnam War, this work has been given new meaning with her recent additions dealing with the current conflict in Iraq.

José Roca, Elizabeth Matheson and Keith Wallace with their varied perspectives on the 27th São Paulo Bienal.

Karen Love on Jim Breukelmans ongoing series of wild constructs, which includes images of Biosphere 2 in Arizona, the façades of postwar houses in Vancouver, and taxidermy shops.

Other contributors include Lida Abdul, Lara Almarcegui, Roy Arden, Barbara Astman, Yael Bartana, Marilá Dardot, Adam Swica, and more.
