The Tempest photo dossier
BY Ken Reynolds

For Theater’s spring 2013 edition (43:1), contributing editor Ken Reynolds organized a dossier of his photographs of great Shakespeare productions from around the globe. While the project was in press, a new production of The Tempest premiered in Romania, directed by Silviu Purcărete—an artist Reynolds has long been following. Here are his photos of this extraordinary 2012 production at the National Theatre of Craiova. With set and costume design by Dragoş Buhagiar.

Black Market Photo Dossier
By Hannah Hurtzig

The installation works by Hannah Hurtzig and Mobile Academy Berlin showcased in this portfolio of photographs deal with notions of knowledge and with how they are used and transferred in acts of communication in public space. Hurtzig’s Mobile Academy projects explore the rhetorics and gestures of conversation, of one-on-one dialogues, as well as new and old modes of public assembly.
