Her writings have appeared in Der Greif, Photoworks, Foam, Objektiv, Unseen magazine, EXTRA, The British Journal of Photography, The Photographers’ Gallery Blog, and MAPP Editions (MACK). Her book »Amore e Piombo (Love and Lead): The Photography of Extremes in 1970s Italy«, co-edited with Roger Hargreaves for AMC books, won the Kraszna Krausz 2015 Best Photography Book Award.
Lisa Stein is the managing editor of »Photocaptionist«. Currently a doctoral student in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University, her research examines the relationship between thought and the photographic image, taking its point of departure in George Bataille’s writings on »nonknowledge«.
