PETRIe Magazine #69 — Extinction — 5th Anniversary Issue
This issue treats the idea of extinction with a variety of interpretations, looking both at individual experiences of loss, alteration, or displacement, and at collective, large-scale events and phenomena.
PETRIe 69 explores the conditions of survival humanity faces today from several viewpoints. The issue is designed as an act of reflection and commitment to action: on the role of creative producers in an industry threatened with extinction; our universal responsibility for what surrounds us; our capacity to imagine and create a more sustainable and valuable world. Partly a reaction to the increasingly popular notion that "print is dead," PETRIe 69 is an effort to highlight the importance of keeping independent publications alive.
In this, the photographic works and written pieces used to illustrate the issue go beyond mere aesthetic gestures, to delve into a more potent, ethically involved role of the medium. PETRIe 69 challenges stereotypical form and content, and produces alternative visualisations of beauty, decay, and environmental change.
