Ciel variable aims to identify and examine leading practices and movements in contemporary art photography. Although it closely covers the history and different uses of photography, the magazine is particularly interested in photographic practices that share the ground with other contemporary art processes, and engage in reflections on the photographic media, their position, and their impact within today’s global culture.

Published three times a year (January, May and September) ; thematic issues, with portfolios, essays, interviews and exhibitions and publications reviews ; 108-116 pages ; in French and English.
