Rut Blees Luxemburg, Caliban Towers I, 1997


Several of the photographers represented in this issue have produced work which is concerned with the aftermath of war. Avi Holtzman's The War Trilogy focuses on the legacies of the enduring conflict in the Middle East. In his accompanying essay David Green looks at the convergence of landscape and the military logistics of space and topography. Robin Dance's series of 'Landscapes of the Holocaust' was made at the sites of concentration camps and extermination camps in Ausria, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania and Poland. Owen Logan's work in Nigeria combines digital technology with documentary practice in an attempt to construct new kinds of metaphor.

British politicians are the subject of David Griffiths' series I Spy Stranger, in which he places himself at the scene of recorded interviews with Members of Parliament. We feature the work of three German-born photographers who work and live in the UK and share a common interest in architectural spaces - Rut Blees Luxemburg's suite of photographs, A Modern Project, represents the silent, anonymous architecture of London at night. Caliban Towers, Britta Jaschinski's critical and complex collection of photographs depict the public zoos of the UK, Ireland, Germany and the USA as oppressive landscapes, desolate places where animals suffer interminable misery; and the series Places of Exposure by Torsten Lauschmann, produced whilst studying at Glasgow School of Art, portrays the arhcitecture of the modern museum.

Museums also also the subject of Jim Harold's extensive series, which deal with the phenomenon of art collections and the position of the museum in contemporary culture. Bridget Smith is drawn to worlds of illusion and spectacle and has produced a series of photographs made in the Madonna Inn in California, a hotel of themed suites.
