A trilingual review launched in 2011 by the Musée de l’Elysée, ELSE explores photography in all of its diversity and questions the new and changing ways in which we gaze at images. In each issue, ELSE features original portfolios and shows the many facets of emerging photography.

A collector’s item with radical design and authentic curatorial platform supported by international photography specialists, the review emphasizes discoveries. Brief and efficient texts supplement the portfolios and allow images to fully express themselves, while a central portfolio dedicated to the Museum’s Collections provides some historical background to these contemporary series.

Its biannual release matches two major events marking the international photography calendar: the Rencontres d’Arles in July, and Paris Photo in November.

ELSE is available by subscription and at fine bookstores.

ELSE
, magazine of the Musée de l’Elysée, invites you to a journey through the Orient with Nadim Asfar’s poetic photograms illuminated by the Lebanese sun, and the Extreme Orient through the very delicate series by Chinese photographer Jiang Pengyi. The Museum welcoming the full diversity of photography, the magazine also presents Marcelo Brodsky’s committed work bringing to life the 1968 social movements by drawing on black and white prints; and Pablo Hare’s, questioning the relationship between text and gesture by documenting publications that once belonged to a terrorist group in the 1960s.

ELSE introduces a dialogue between the still-lives of Manfred Paul, from the Museum’s collections, and those of Mathieu Lavanchy, while Ad Nuis’ quirky eye reveals some of the incongruity to be found in the daily lives of “ordinary” people. With humor and consideration, Nicolas Daubannes demonstrates the creativity of inmates who create cooking recipes with a limited range of ingredients. Maurice Mbikayi questions the impact of the digital era and new technologies on African societies and the deep changes generated in traditional societies.

Enjoy the journey!

Vasantha Yogananthan, Pablo López Luz, Thierry Girard, Pablo Réol, Lukas Ilgner, Vivian Olmi, John Lehr, Hervé, Siya Akoi, Pierre Defaix, George Osodi, Thomas Mailaender & Charles Chaplin

Contemporary photographers question or reinvent the world. Whether anthropological (George Osodi, Pablo López Luz, Lukas Ilgner) or documentary (Thierry Girard, Vivian Olmi, Pierre Defaix), ELSE wishes to reflect the diversity of their approaches. Most often, they cover their tracks, circumventing the trap of objectivity and sharing their own subjective eye. Hence, Vasantha Yogananthan delivers his personal contemporary reinterpretation of the Râmâyana; Pablo Réol tells of Cuba’s venture into capitalism through American cars; and John Lehr dissects the historical layers of shopping centers’ storefronts.

For its ninth issue, ELSE has been revamped and reasserts a strong editorial content: the magazine becomes a collectible review. And fitting to the Swiss cultural landscape, the new formula is now in three languages (French, English and German). In resonance, the magazine is inserted in a leaflet dedicated to the Collections of the Musée de l’Elysée. In this issue, we wished to pay tribute to major Swiss photographer and long-time friend of the Museum, René Burri whom we sorely miss; but his images live on, and it is the role of our Museum to ensure that they continue to exist.
