Paul Graham, Untitled, 1996-97


In this period of pre-millennial tension, Paul Graham (England), Reneke Dijkstra (Netherlands) and Marie-Jo Lafontaine (Belgium), have been inspired to create large-scale photographic portraits of young Europeans, portraying them as self-confident yet vulnerable. To coincide with the first phase of exhibitions in Photo 98 - the UK Year of Photography and the Electronic Image - we present the work of Joan Fontcuberta (Spain), Jorma Puranen (Finland), and Marie-Jo Lafontaine, three of the ten artists who were commissioned to produce work that reflects on the nature of Europe and its changing political, economic and cultural identities. Also featured in this redesigned issue are Gabriele Basilico (Italy) and Abigail Lane (England), and Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japan) who, along with Paul Graham, was shortlisted for the 1998 Citibank Photography Prize.
