Amc2 journal Issue 12 Shining in Absence is about the space left by the disappearance of photography both as an idea and as a material object. It is also a memento mori for Frido Troost (1960–2013) the Dutch photo historian and archivist. His organisation ICM (Institute of Concrete Matter) in Haarlem was acquired by AMC London shortly before he died. He is missed by many friends for his warmth and innate understanding of the boundless nature of photography. Designed and edited by Erik Kessels.
