The issue includes the Brighton Photo Biennial 2008 Programme. Co-published with Photoworks, this fully illustrated 24 page publication provides details of BPB 2008 exhibitions and events including a concise essay by Julian Stallabrass introducing festival themes and issues, and an essay by Sarah James exploring the genre of aftermath photography in the museum.


Issue 11 of the redesigned and expanded Photoworks magazine takes its theme from Brighton Photo Biennial 2008, Memory of Fire: the War of Images and Images of War. Julian Stallabrass, BPB 2008 Curator, considers the difficulties entailed in the public exhibition of war imagery in a gallery context; Ian Jeffrey looks at the photography of Wilhelm von Thoma; Catherine Moriarty explores the graphic deployment of photography in posters produced in opposition to the Vietnam war; and Kitty Hauser explores the work of British field archaeologist Osbert Guy Stanhope Crawford in Nazi Germany. The magazine also features folios by Daniel Blaufuks, Lisa Barnard, Nina Berman and Sarah Pickering,


Elsewhere, Martha Rosler writes on Flat Daddy; Mignon Nixon offers a personal response to Nancy Spero’s 1966-70 War Series; David Chandler considers the ethical difficulties surrounding Eddie Adam’s iconic photograph of the execution of a Vietcong prisoner; and Roger Hargreaves previews of the Barbican Art Gallery’s forthcoming exhibitions On the Subject of War; Gerda Taro and This Is War! Robert Capa at Work. Book reviews by Clare Grafik on Iranian Photography Now and Chris Mullen on CEAU complete our eleventh issue.
