Eyeshot Magazine #5

Flora & Fauna

“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.

5 Flora Fauna Eyeshot

Print limited edition

Eyeshot “Flora & Fauna” is published as a one limited-edition print run of 500 copies, limited in both quantity and quality. Since Eyeshot was founded, we made it our mission: hand-numbered and autographed publications represent the essence of our brand.
