This is the fourth issue of C41 magazine, a printed edition of contemporary photography from all over the world. Because we like it way too much, we’ve decided to publish it three times a year. Could we call it our (slow) rebellion? Maybe. Rebellion has become more personal and intimate and way less social than ever before. That’s why we are using it to talk about photography and see what rebellion has become in our world through new eyes. We chose the work of Lisetta Carmi to represent rebellion through photography. It’s our cover story, but most of all, it’s a big part of the history of photography and one of the first expressions of freedom of thought in the early 1970s. Lisetta chose to explore the world of transsexuals in Genoa, a taboo that continues to be underexplored today. But now, more than forty years later, is it possible we still have taboos and reasons to rebel?
