Editor’s letter

I have two daughters, Sarah and Raquel. What I first did when I saw them in her mother’s arms after they were born was taking pictures of them, capturing that moment and making that miracle of life last forever in a graphic document. I would have considered myself a socially rare individual if I had failed to make such documentary of life. We have the means; we have the technology tools which make it easier for us to carry out this documentary work and enable us to create that family album, shoot and take photographs, portray and immortalize. […] In this issue of Shooter Magazine, consisting of two volumes, we will find very different samples of the artistic view of the portrait only seen through the work and its plasticity. No corsets, restrictions or fears. Giacomo Por becomes the guest editor of volume one and suggests a selection of artists who, under the common subject of portrait, show us their vision of this photographic discipline. With the title “The Ghost of a Metaphor” it is the common thread that surrounds and embraces it. In volume two, which contains the photo selection made by the editorial board of Shooter, we can explore the personal vision of the artists in the same visual territory, the portrait. Let’s see how that artistic look “portrays” a varied and complex universe. We’ll see how photographers from different nationalities dig into the guts of the portrait and show us their version of society, a cultural universe and even its own particular world. What do they all look for? The artistic discipline of the portrait has multiple visual edges, so many sides and creative possibilities as worlds live therein. We only want to show them to you to let you get close to the fact, the individual, the person and therefore the artist and the understanding of their works. (Continue in the print version).

Dreaming is the reason why i am alive. EDITOR’S LETTER N4 Winter project 2013-14

Dreaming is the reason why i am alive.

My whole life i’ve been playing this role of designer which, for the time being, i don’t feel like quitting, and maybe that’s the reason why i’ve been brainstorming that much that i just can’t control it and i don’t know which idea i want to express first.

The only universal truth is that summer comes after spring and fall does it after winter… And life goes on and never stops.

And the factory of ideas we started running with shooter some time ago is in constant movement, updating its engineering standards to keep going.

When it came to face this quarterly message, i wanted to review some of the texts i have dedicated you all, shooter magazine’s readers, in which i dealt with many dissimilar subjects (or not that dissimilar) such as marketing and dreams.

I could dedicate this missive to winter, writing about any of the typical proverbs such as “winter is summer’s heir”, or so.

Or i could anticipate you something about this wonderful issue, or any of the treasures that will bring the next one.

I must admit that writing this editor’s letter in an orthodox way seems almost impossible.

I can only but keep on doing this magazine shaped work and convene you to subsequent letters, aiming to continue sharing with you concerns and thoughts somehow correct and coherent. although i wouldn’t want to say goodbye without leaving you a question for consideration: are ideas being affected by this unceasing and irregular rhythm of the life we live in?

I’m beginning to think that as long as the ideas follow the pace…
