Recovery

The Recovery issue seeks to identify with the necessary recuperation period that takes place after one is confronted  with an altercation, whether social, political, ecological or cultural. The gradual change that occurs in an individual’s or in family life in the aftermath of a drastically transformative event, also expresses the diverse ways in which people as well as spaces experience, and adjust to life, often expressing their adaptability. This might occur in their interactions with one another or the places they live or work in. How, then, can photography express this moment, this passage and growth from one state of being into another? Are changes always for the better? or is there indeed ‘recovery’ at all?
