It’s the first guest-edited issue of Eyeshot, and it’s also a limited edition run of 400 copies each signed by the founder Marco Savarese.

The renowned UP Collective just opened its door for two new members: Melissa O’Shaughnessy and Alison McCauley.

The winners of World Press Photo 2018 were announced in Amsterdam this weekend. A lot of the nominated and winning photographers joined the World Press Photo Festival to present their work and exchange views with editors, jurors and others from the industry during panel talks.

The new issue of the Eyeshot street photography magazine is here and its theme is Flashgun. It approaches the idea of the flash in a literal way but also in a more philosophical manner: “A flash is as fast as a New York minute, the blink of an eye, a heartbeat, an instant, a jiffy, or a split second.”
Last Friday the ‘Eyewitness in Brussels’ exhibition opened in the Jewish Museum of Belgium, showing 30 images by 21 finalists.
