This issue of Portfolio focuses on photographic representation of the cultural, economic and social landscapes of Europe. Mohamed Bourouissa’s series Périphérique stages moments of tension and the power relationships which exist within the ghetto-like suburbs of Paris (la banlieue). Currently receiving critical acclaim, this young artist’s work is now being exhibited alongside major established artists in galleries throughout France.

The result of three years’ work, Patrick Shanahan’s new series A Momentary Presence – Tales from New Europe attempts to express the establishment of a fragile new European community. Joanna Lowry discusses documentation of the landscape and the limits of photography’s ability to represent social and historical change. As a counterpoint, Tomoko Yoneda’s contemporary photographs of scenes of 20th century wars and battles deal with concepts of historical visibility.

From Denmark, Trine Søndergaard & Nicolai Howalt’s series How to Hunt comprises sequential digitally-manipulated photographs which depict hunting’s distorted relationship with the land. Michelle Sank’s series of portraits of young people in Mannheim, Germany, explore the rawness of adolescence in this multi-racial community. And we feature a selection from Ben Murphy’s series, Riverbed, a photographic record of the idiosyncratic and improvised living spaces of a group of British settlers in Southern Spain.

Focussing on urban living in the UK, Dinu Li’s series Press the Star, Then Say Hello, was commissioned by Autograph ABP to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Samuel Selvon’s 1956 book, ‘The Lonely Londoners’. Martina Mullaney, known for her photographs of hostels for the homeless, presents a selection from her new series Countdown, photographs of the London homes of strangers and friends.
