Flash Forward/Flash Back Every Week

posted August 3, 2018 in Announcements, Flash Forward 2018, Flash Forward Flash Back

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

Flash Forward/Flash Back News

Hello Magenta Friends,

As you might recall some 6 months ago, we announced that Stage 1 of our new website Flash Forward/Flash Back was live. And we’ve been hard at work since, creating a space for inspiration and discussion.

We’re happy to announce that Laurence Butet-Roch is taking on the role of editor. Aside from continuing to celebrate the works of past and present winners, through profiles and highlights, the site will also host discussions with practitioners around questions relating to the medium and its usages. We will invite guest editors to present their coup de cœur, and lists some of the incredible new projects, commissions, exhibitions and publications.

New content will be added each week, starting with a look at four Flash Forward winners whose work touched on this year’s four special categories. Please come and join us in this exciting new direction at Flash Forward/Flash Back.

Thank you to Presenting Sponsor TD Bank Group for its help in all the areas of Flash Forward. And a thank you to everyone: our artists to our jurors, editors and friends. Have a great month!
