Pieter Hugo, Martin Kofi, Wild Honey Collector, Ghana, 2005

Pieter Hugo, Mallam Galadima Ahamadu with Jamis, Abuja, Nigeria, 2005

This issue features the work of three outstanding photographers currently working in Africa whose work has yet to be adequately exhibited in the UK. Pieter Hugo’s series of dignified portraits of working men in Ghana and Nigeria moves between photojournalism and fine art photography. In the series Jo’burg, Guy Tillim considers the private lives of the residents of inner-city Johannesburg, the often-forgotten subjects of the decay and renewal of a city undergoing radical transformation. Hentie van der Merwe continues his interest in issues of identity and gender in Trappings which considers the place of militarism in the construction of masculine identity.

Guy Tillim, Tshililo and her friends, 2005

We present the first publication of Border, Mitra Tabrizian’s new series which deals with the subject of exile. Her thoughtful combinations of image and personal narratives describe the complexity of life for refugees, émigrés and exiles living in the UK. Stuart Franklin has travelled extensively to produce large-format photographs on the subject of Europe’s changing landscapes – hot cities, floods, plastic farming and disappearing glaciers. We preview these alarming images, which will be included in Franklin’s 2008 monograph on the subject.

Paul Winch-Furness, The Master Plan, 2006

Peter Oetzmann, Picture This, 2006

Also presented are Edgar Martins’ photographs of forests in aftermath of the fires along the coastline of Portugal in the summer of 2005; Jason Oddy’s series about Playas, New Mexico, the town which has been bought in its entirety by the Bush administration, to enable the government to simulate acts of terrorism as research for its ‘war on terror’; and Stella Santacatterina’s discussion of recent work by artists Igor and Svetlana Kopystiansky.

Mitra Tabrizian, Road to Nowhere, 2006

This issue also announces and presents the work of the winners of the 2006 Jerwood Photography Awards, the annual award open to recent graduates from visual arts degree courses in the UK. Francis Hodgson discusses the work of the receipients -  Zoe Hatziyannaki, Peter Oetzmann, Indre Serpytyte and Paul Winch-Furness - and commends their success in dealing with important contemporary issues.
