Crude Metaphors, Hoarding the Porto Novo Night, story and photographs by Sala Elise Patterson.
Hotshoe Magazine has been in print since 1977. Renowned as a cutting edge photography magazine, it is well known in an industry that has changed dramatically since the 1970s. In 2002, Hotshoe Magazine was reinvented as a showcase of photographic portfolios, with a multitude of voices and opinion that include some of the most influential names in photography today, writing in one of the few truly independent publications, and distributed throughout the world. Forty years after the launch of the print magazine Hotshoe 333 launched as a curated space to show work, as well as offer an array of photo books, speciality coffee, and a simple seasonal menu of food and wine, including organic and biodynamic, focusing on quality, with an emphasis on limiting waste.
Hotshoe Magazine is proud to announce its latest Issue 207: A West African Portrait. This beautifully produced publication exploring photography from West Africa was made in partnership with Autograph, London and David Hill Gallery. The work and voices of artists Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou, Samuel Fosso, Rachida Bissirou and Seydou Keita, among others, look to address questions such as “what sets West African photography apart” and “how has it changed over time”. The Crude Metaphors section features a brilliant piece by Sala Elise Patterson titled Hoarding the Porto Novo Night and there are reviews of four newly published photography books.
