Hello Magenta Friends,

We hope you’ve been staying tuned to Flash Forward/Flash Back, our engaging new platform under the direction of editor Laurence Butet-Roch. Each week we post new content, from conversations by Flash Forward artists, to in-depth looks at important work.

“I’ve modelled the Flash Forward Flash Back website along the lines of my real-life encounters with fellow photographers, editors and academics. Those conversations often lead to the discovery of new work and new artists, the recommendations of shows to attend and books to purchase, and discussions about approach, ethics, representation and responsibility,” says Butet-Roch. You can read her full editor’s letter here.

Don’t miss one of the most recent roundtable posts that poses one of photography’s most challenging questions: How do artists honour the dignity of those they are representing?

Let us know what you think, we’re on Twitter at @MagentaFDN and Facebook as
