Trigger Issue 5: Energy is a Futures Edition, funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. Every year FUTURES – the only Europe-based photography platform bringing together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world– publishes a themed book, and for 2023 they invited FOMU, being a FUTURES member, to develop a new publication through Trigger.

Trigger Issue 5: Energy is edited by Futures members Julia Gelezova and Ángel Luis González Fernández (PhotoIreland), Emese Mucsi (Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center), Daria Tuminas (Fotodok), and Tom Viaene (FOMU).(source:
