Eyeshot Magazine #6

The Mirror

“The Mirror” is the sixth issue of Eyeshot Magazine, published in December 2020. For this edition, the curator and Editor-in-Chief Marco Savarese asked six guest photographers to investigate the theme of mirrors in Photography.

Since the beginning of Photography, mirrors have been explored and looked at with great interest over time, and capturing a reflection of reality is the essence of Photography itself. As a result, the quest was to imagine two opposed reflective surfaces: the photographers and their truth.

At the end of the issue, Eyeshot celebrates the winners of the Italian Street Photography Festival.

X-Per Premium White 14og/m2 is a sharp and uncoated paper with a special treatment to enhance the feeling and allow for particularly sharp and brilliant printing. Its opacity and print contrast makes it an extraordinary choice for publishing Eyeshot’s exclusive magazines.


EFC: ELEMENTARY CHLORINE FREE | It’s an environmentally friendly type of paper that has been bleached with products free of elemental chlorine. By replacing it with chlorine dioxide, polluting emissions are reduced by 90%.

FSC® MIX | The Forest Stewardship Council is one of the internationally recognised forestry certification systems, which guarantees the proper management of forests and the traceability of the resulting products.

HEAVY METAL ABSENCE | Paper and packaging are produced in a way that allows them to be reused and recycled. The absence of harmful metals and other substances and materials that are hazardous to human health is guaranteed.

LONG LIFE: ISO 9706 | This certification ensures that paper production recycles more CO2 than it emits, thus reducing the release of CO2 into the atmosphere that causes global warming.
