Portfolio's 40th issue features new work from Hannah Starkey, known restaging of past moments and events through a collaborative process with her sitters. Accompanying a selection from her new series, Charlotte Cotton discusses the shifts in Starkey's approach, and the clinical yet seductive atmospheres which Starkey now creates.

Tina Barney's first major exhibition in the UK, at the Barbican Art Gallery in early 2005, presents The Europeans, an extensive series on class and culture. We feature a selection of these photographs, accompanied by an essay by John Slyce in which he examines issues of identity and identification within Barney's work.

Thomas Joshua Cooper's ambitious series The World¹s Edge - The Atlantic Basin Project, is an epic endeavour begun in 1990 to map the extremities of the land and islands that surround the Atlantic Ocean. We present a selection of the photographs from the first part of the project, which maps the western, northern and southern points of the continents of Europe and Africa, accompanied by an essay by Morgan Falconer.

This issue also announces the five winners of the 2004 Jerwood Photography Awards, a prestigious annual award open to recent graduates from visual arts degree courses in the UK, which this year attracted applications of exceptionally high quality. Amna Malik discusses the work of the recipients - Emma Hamilton, Travis Hodges, Sarah Lynch, Richard Page and Léonie Purchas - and suggests how they contribute towards an expansion of our conventional understanding of portraiture, still life and landscape photography.
