Whether we live in a city or rural ideal our interdependence with nature is ever-present. In this issue, we explore our role in nature and our relationship with the creatures who share our world. Portfolios include the work of Trent Parke, Stephen Gill, Mimi Plumb, P Guilmoth, Jem Southam, Yana Wernicke, Rinko Kawauchi, Takashi Homma, Masahisa Fukase, Jack Davison, Robbie Lawrence, Michael Lundgren and Gregory Crewdson, alongside an extended Q&A. The Crude Metaphors section, featuring a short story by Cal Brocket inspired by the photographs of Robin Schwartz, also perfectly fits the theme. Plus reviews of four newly released photo books.
