The December/ January issue of Aesthetica is now available to purchase online and in stores internationally. In Issue 62, Aesthetica focuses on the idea of the unconventional. It’s a celebration of practitioners who are experimenting in their field by working in interdisciplinary ways and introducing concepts from other areas of art and design into their work. We take a look at Anne Collier’s critique of commercial photography at MCA Chicago, Frank Gehry’s surrealist architecture at Centre Pompidou, Reiner Ruthenbeck’s contemplation of geometric form at London’s Serpentine Galleries, and Lightopia, an exhibition exploring how the electric light has revolutionised our environment at the Design Museum Gent.
In the winter edition, photographers Emily Shur and Joël Tettamanti explore structures and location, while Todd Hido captures light in an atmospheric way. The rising stars of Swedish photography are surveyed as the spotlight shines on Sweden’s latest talent, and we also present an overview of Guy Bourdin’s provocative fashion photography. Cover photographer, Eugenio Recuenco, uses narrative devices to create dramatic and powerful images, and Bryn Higgins’s film Electricity tells an affecting story of self-discovery. There is also an opportunity for you to watch films from this year’s Aesthetica Short Film Festival.
