The first issue on ‘impact and photography’ is made in close collaboration with The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KABK), The Hague, The Netherlands, and guest editor Donald Weber, teacher and researcher at KABK. The question that guides us through this TRIGGER issue on ‘Impact’: “Can we still assume photography’s (age-old) impact in an image-saturated world, where fake news, the questioning of representative democracy and the return of colonial pasts are engaging different political cultures, publics and action groups?” Through 20 contributions TRIGGER aims to cast impact as a re-enactment or assertion of radical intimacy, initiates a different gaze on the world and shows that impact can exist within an ecology or geography of photography too. Impact is social, participative, conflictual.

This issue includes contributions by Donald Weber, Steven Humblet, Ariella Azoulay, Simone Kalkman, Lewis Bush, Wilco Versteeg, Oliver Vodeb, Chris Becher, Mads Holm, Shahidul Alam, Alberto García del Castillo, Andrea Stultiens, Andrew Jackson, Savannah Dodd, Sara Dominici, M. Neelika Jayawardane, Peter Bouckaert, Rutger van der Hoeven, Florian Göttke, Taco Hidde Bakker, Walter Costa and Stefan Vanthuyne.
