Trigger#2 Uncertainty


Publisher Fw: Books / Fomu

ISBN 9789490119928

Idea Code 20558

This issue explores the possibilities that arise when uncertainty is considered at the centre of documentary photographic practice. Documentary is based on conjecture rather than knowledge, but it is only when this is embraced as the genre’s essence that decentralised and polycentric results can emerge. Uncertainty and the speculative can push the idea of representation through documentary to new levels of experimentation, doubt, and questioning in both form and content. The more than 20 contributions to this issue offer proposals for the document’s new uncertain potentials, whether as life-giving fiction, allegory, or pre-enactment, or even the anti-documentary as care aesthetics.
