This mixtape is your companion to Huck 46: The Documentary Photography Special II, a bumper-sized compendium of personal photo stories delivered in good old silent print. Our reasons for choosing each song are about… Read more »

Ying Ang Playlist

Nomadic photographer Ying Ang contemplates the meaning of home in her contribution to Huck 46 – The Documentary Photography Special II. Her beautifully eerie portrait of Australia’s Gold Coast – the city she grew up in and has been trying to escape ever since – uncovered the darker side of life downunder in subtle Lynchian… Read more »

Is social media the new weapon of war?

Truth is the first casualty of war. So as the US-led strikes on the so-called ‘Islamic State’ swings into action, to which version of this embattled veracity are we to subscribe? It might be that the Jihadi Caliphate that is the Islamic State is indeed a medievalist tyranny. The United Nations has verified that war… Read more »

Huck 46 – The Documentary Photography Special II

Emerging Directors of the Caméra d’Or

Cannes swiftly becomes a self-contained universe. The routine of rolling down the hill to The Croisette early in the morning becomes ingrained. Festival housemates become like family and the whole industry circles the same orbit: waving badges at beige security men, trotting up endless stairs, frowning in the wifi café, queuing for espressos. Twitter is… Read more »

Emerging Directors of the Caméra d’Or

Week two of the 67th Cannes Film Festival began with the departure of the sun. The town seemed to exhale in one weary breath as five days of frantic activity were punished by moisture from above. Yet, as ever, films were around to restore spirits. Journalists have it easy in comparison with the bold souls… Read more »

Emerging Directors of the Caméra d’Or

The 67th Cannes Film Festival is not exactly conducive to work. Queuing for films, watching films and fraternising with film-lovers could easily fill every long, sleep-deprived day leaving no space for writing about what’s actually going down.
