This issue of Exit focuses on portrait photography and the representation of ourselves, or rather, of what we want to be and what we want to show of ourselves to others. With the influx of digital media and instantaneous global connectivity, the craft of portrait photography has gradually become one of the most conscientious practices in the construction of identity. The creation of the notion of the subject within the studio – a space of dreams and illusions – allows us to imagine ourselves otherwise. Featured artists include Thomas Dworkzak, Pierre et Gilles, Clare Strand, Helmut Newton, Lee To Sang, Catherine Leutenegger, Adama Kouyaté and others.
