On the Verge is the third publication by FUTURES, a Europe-based photography platform bringing together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world. Void joined FUTURES as a member in 2020.
On the Verge takes Charles Baudelaire’s famous letter of 1859— in which he outlines his contempt for photography— as a starting point to explore the role that photography and art can and should play in shaping the future. Eight writers have composed letters responding to Baudelaire to entertain, provoke, inspire and empower.
