The Eyes questions cultural and societal evolutions through the prism of photography and creation and gives carte blanche to experts directly concerned by the subjects addressed.

With this new issue entitled (After)care, The Eyes explores the methods and approaches of photographers who address the most traumatic chapters of our individual and collective histories. After collaborating with SMITH (Transgalactic, 2020) and Johny Pitts (B-Side, 2021), The Eyes invited the Spanish artist Laia Abril to take over the content of the magazine.

Many questions are raised in this issue: how do we portray our deepest wounds? What is the significance of vulnerability in the creation of photographs? How can we ensure that the violence of the world is not repeated through the violence of images?
