Celebrating its fifteenth and last issue last autumn and faithful to its ambition to confront perspectives, ELSE delivered a kaleidoscopic vision of our multiple and colorful world. Each portfolio presented featured an original series by a photographer and their considerations of the banal and the everyday life.

Our acknowledgements to the photographers, the curators and the historians who, through their discoveries and keen eye, brought forth what could off-hand seem quirky and disparate portfolios.

Once again and for the last time, ELSE aspired to be an editorial platform that dissects the world, an echo to the obsessions and hatred of our times. ELSE never hesitated to share with its readers the violence of men, the propaganda, the failure of political utopia and the manipulation of images. Nor does it ever refrain from displaying its beauty, its sometimes strange encounters, and the smiles of that and those contributing to its progress.

As we were saying: portfolios as a reflection of reality.
