This issue of PORTFOLIO features some of the most innovative photographic art being created and exhibited in the UK in 1999. The archiecture of institutions is the source of work by James Casebere, Andreas Gursky, and Mark Power (who has been documenting the building of the Millennium Dome in London since early 1998). We are delighted to present John Stezaker's uncanny digital photographs of children, Hannah Starkey and Lesley Shearer's staged photographs of young women, commissioned panoramic photographs of Wales by Josef Koudelka, Melanie Manchot's large-scale photographic portraits on canvas, Deborah Baker's series of video capture images, John Askew's photographs of Russia, and the work of Jon Thompson.
