ELSE, magazine of the Musée de l’Elysée, invites you to a journey from the Orient with Nadim Asfar’s poetic photograms illuminated by the Lebanese sun, to the Extreme Orient through the very delicate series by Chinese photographer Jiang Pengyi. The Museum welcoming the full diversity of photography, the magazine also presents Marcelo Brodsky’s committed work bringing to life the 1968 social movements by drawing on black and white prints; and Pablo Hare’s, questioning the relationship between text and gesture by documenting publications that once belonged to a terrorist group in the 1960s.
ELSE #14 - November 2017
A trilingual review launched in 2011 by the Musée de l’Elysée, ELSE explores photography in all of its diversity and questions the new and changing ways in which we gaze at images. In each issue, ELSE features original portfolios and shows the many facets of emerging photography.
A collector’s item with radical design and authentic curatorial platform supported by international photography specialists, the review emphasizes discoveries. Brief and efficient texts supplement the portfolios and allow images to fully express themselves, while a central portfolio dedicated to the Museum’s Collections provides some historical background to these contemporary series.
Its biannual release matches two major events marking the international photography calendar: the Rencontres d’Arles in July, and Paris Photo in November.
ELSE is available by subscription and at fine bookstores.
Scince 2015, ELSE is under the direction of Tatyana Franck. As a participative platform, ELSE has an editorial committee composed of:
Martin Parr et Erik Kessels
For Africa and Oceania
