TRIGGER publishes (longread) essays, interviews, opinions, new gazes, and opens up research to the broader public.
TRIGGER is a publication platform concerning photography, which originates from and is supported by FOMU.
TRIGGER is published entirely in English, both as an online platform and an annual printed publication in collaboration with Fw:Books (Amsterdam).
This special issue explores various forms of collaboration in photography. Sixteen contributions highlight different strategies to question current notions of authorship and ownership and to break through existing heteronormative, state or hyper-individual categories. In this issue you can find accessible essays by internationally renowned researchers and writers such as Elspeth Brown, Ileana Selejan and Hettie Judah. It also provides an insight into the forms of collaboration and community in the diverse photography practices of Jonathas de Andrade, Grace Ndiritu, Leigh Ledare, Dries Segers and Vincen Beeckman. You can also read some conversations between photographers, critics and curators about socially engaged photography and collaborations with the non-human. Artists and photographers such as Debmalya Roy Choudhuri, Susanne Kriemann, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Kaali Collective and Rehab Eldalil have turned existing work into a new contribution especially for this issue. It has become a polyphonic song with photography practices from Brazil, Bangladesh, Vietnam, United States, United Kingdom, Egypt, Germany and, of course, Belgium.
