Issue 3
Winter 2011

How do photographs circulate and what happens to them over time? The winter issue of frieze d/e looks at how artists use photographs both as isolated objects and as instant images.

Artist and writer Hito Steyerl looks at the story of the photojournalist agency Black Star, exploring what happens to the archives of photo-journalism after digitization.

Plus, writer and lawyer Daniel McClean discusses five ground-breaking cases of photography in litigation and Hans-Peter Feldmann contributes an exclusive artist project, accompanied by an overview of his 40-year career by Elodie Evers.
