Mat Collishaw, Ideal Boys, 1997


In this issue we feature Mat Collishaw's series, Ideal Boys, photographed in Naples, accompanied by an essay by Stella Santacatterina. Manscapes - Truckstops and Lovers Lanes by Evergon formed part of a retrospective of the Canadian artist's work during his fellowship at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford. Emmanuel Cooper discusses the exhibition and its underlying gay agenda.

Catherine Yass's new series of large back-lit transparencies, Grave, was commissioned by Portfolio Gallery in Edinburgh and made in the adjacent Greyfriars' Churchyard, one of the City's most historic graveyards. Parveen Adams and David Ward deconstruct the work and discuss Yass's original photographic techniques. Concurrent with Hannah Collins' retrospective at the Centre de la Photographie in Paris, we reproduce stills from her operatic film, La Cantant, and an extract from a conversation between the artist and Pavel Büchler. A selection of Karen Knorr's allegorical series, Academies, is reproduced here alongside an essay by art historian and critic, Antonio Guzman.

The exhibition The Edge of Europe by Anthony Haughey focuses on the complex relationship between the West of Ireland, its landscape and people, and Ireland's diaspora on the East Coast of the United States of America. We feature a number of these works and an essay by Mark Durden. In his exhibition 'in other words', Roger Palmer extends his interest in figural language and post-colonial politics. We reproduce images, made in South Africa, Scotland and Canada, accompanied by an essay by Ian Hunt. And in memory of the artist Andrea Fisher who died in January 1999, we include a tribute to her life and work by the writer and curator, Stella Santacatterina.
