Concreta 08 (Fall 2016) reflects on the drifts of the philosophy of photography where the discipline is understood not only as a research subject —as an image or a practice— but as a theoretical object. This phenomenological change in status transforms photography into a model that allow us to think ethical, political, anthropological and epistemological questions that are crucial in our social and cultural present and future contexts. In this sense, photography is not only addressed as an image, but first and foremost, as a field of relations in which praxis and medium are intertwined. It counts with the collaboration of Enric Mira, Claudia Andujar, Pablo Lafuente, Alexandra Moschovi, Mauricio Lissovsky, Miguel Benlloch, Ariella Azoulay, Teresa Arozena, Christopher Williams, Vilém Flusser, Paco Inclán, Greta Alfaro, Rafael Barber, Iris Dressler and Pedro G. Romero.
