Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the release of the twenty-fifth issue of Prefix Photo magazine. Editor Scott McLeod has assembled an array of writers and artists, all of whom engage with the subjects of land and sea in their critical explorations of labour, industry, transportation, communication and trade, as follows:
Architectural historian and critic Kenneth Hayes examines photographers Louie Palu, Edward Burtynsky and Allan Sekula and their photographic observations of Sudbury, Ontario, a city uniquely identified with mining. The three artists worked independently, but all had a complex, extended engagement with the place, and with the genre of mining photography.
Artist and educator Robert Bean considers how photographic artist Scott Conarroe, in his photographic series By Sea, subtly suggests, through his careful inscription of place, the threat posed by environmental, economic, social and political crises, both past and future.
