Odiseo Volume 9 takes a puff of Satire by casting an acid, provocative glance on love, progress and society through the desecrating visions of Ingo Niermann, Kingston Trinder, Joe Fletcher and Fiktion’s Rene Daalder & Rem Koolhaas. Steamy imagery provided by Alexandra Von Fuerst, Marlen Keller, Megan Cullen and Atelier Cristina Ramos. Illustrations by Pol Montserrat and Jordi Labanda

Alexandra Von Fuerst enhances the female body and its beauty in all aspects in a surreal photo essay on sexual fetishisms accompanied with a still life play with hedonic clay sculptures. Megan Cullen depicts a sisterly artistic sublime orchestrated in the desert; alongside ‘Honey’ a fuzzy one woman show by Marlen Keller, this volume also includes a sensual still life story directed by Atelier Cristina Ramos.
