“Flora & Fauna” is the fifth issue of Eyeshot Magazine, published in May 2020. The Editor-in-Chief Marco Savarese throws down a challenge to five guest photographers: to talk about flora and fauna through Street Photography.
Nature and animals are undisputed protagonists in art, from Palaeolithic cave paintings to Maurizio Cattelan’s avant-garde provocations. But how can street photography, which is intrusive, frenetic and eager for contemporaneity, talk about something that lives without being aware of contemporary issues?
The lesson you learn from flora and fauna is the ability to adapt to a world that flows so fast that forgot nature is our best teacher.
