How can one comprehend the relation between energy and photography or visual culture today?

Trigger’s newest edition is an exploration of that question – and broadly thematizes alternative approaches to energy through photography, the issue of society’s decarbonisation, the call for repair and collective values. Energy is a marker for the exhaustion of the planet through mining, drilling, forest clearance – the list is endless. But energy was always more than fuel or the material potential for action (or progress). You will find oil (corporations), renewable energies, Buddhism, war energies, female anger, spiritual forests, and more, all mixed in the same jar. This issue brings to the surface some of the different histories and cultures of energy that are often invisible today. It explores new possibilities for imagining energy, through transitions and new vocabularies, and for how photography can be involved in all of this.
