The Flayed Cats

Photographer, Aurélia Foucher’s on-going series explores the intimacy of friendship

Words by Aurélia Foucher

Ordinary moments shared with my friends. A daily life multiplied in an intimate way. Throughout different mediums, it is recreated, repeated - many eyes for a diffracted reality. Images which reveal the intemporality of these floating moments, between memory and imaginary. A collective loneliness constantly searching new identities.

I reckon photography detains this reassuring power that sublimates simplicity. Detail. Beauty remains in the intention of observing, to create something else. Exist, again, always. But in a different way.

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.

Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
