This Sunday we feature the work of London based photographer Will Sanders. To see more of Will’s work you can visit his website here.
"Most of these photos were taken along the Pan American HIghway in Peru during the South American summer. The billboards are put up in early Dec along the route to the south beaches as this route is extremely busy during the summer months. It always seems strange to me to see these colourful adverts in such a desolate setting, kind of like advertising on the moon and I always looked forward to seeing them each year. One year there weren’t as many and I was told it was because there had been so many accidents due to people being distracted that they had to be taken down".
If you would like to see your work featured as part of SUN (DAE) DAY Submissions, please send a handful of jpegs and a portfolio link to:
"The press is so powerful in its image-making role, it can make the criminal look like he’s a the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.
If you aren’t careful, because I’ve seen some of you caught in that bag, you run away hating yourself and loving the man — while you’re catching hell from the man. You let the man maneuver you into thinking that it’s wrong to fight him when he’s fighting you. He’s fighting you in the morning, fighting you in the noon, fighting you at night and fighting you all in between, and you still think it’s wrong to fight him back. Why? The press. The newspapers make you look wrong.”

Aint-Bad Magazine Issue 8: The American South
(FR) Nous avons vu précédemment comment Mossless avait compilé 10 ans de photographie américaine dans un magazine complètement dingue et complètement réussi. Aint-Bad Magazine nous propose de nous arrêter un instant dans le Sud, ce continent photographique, historique et fantasmatique à l’intérieur du continent. J’attends ce numéro avec autant d’impatience que celui des éditeurs virtuoses de Brooklyn. On y retrouve d’ailleurs quelques invités communs (Joe Leavenworth, Walker Pickering, Jeff Rich, Whitten Sabbatini, Keith Yahrling), mais là où Mossless crée quasiment sous nos yeux un kaléidoscope narratif et sa propre légende, l’approche régionale devrait permettre de se recentrer sur la façon dont les photographes se saisissent d’une réalité et d’un espace. Aucune contradiction entre les 2, on aura la carte et le territoire. C’est la fête pour ceux qui comme moi sont fascinés par les variantes modernes de l’imagerie américaine.
