The first major monograph by Finnish rising star Sanna Kannisto, "Fieldwork" explores the dialectics of nature and culture in both artistic and scientific contexts. Since 1997, Kannisto has spent several months per year living alongside biologists in the rainforests of Latin America. Adopting elements of her companions' scientific methods, she developed her own form of visual research, extending her depictions of flora and fauna beyond the confines of the natural sciences. Breaking away from the conventions of nature photography, which typically presents specimens in isolation, devoid of context, Kannisto's work addresses the acts of staging and image-making. Her photographs, with their biologically correct titles, show not only the breathtaking beauty of her subjects, but also the tools used to achieve the would-be image at center--the black drapes, the difficult "neutral" lighting rig, the seamless white background. Signs of a scientifically standardized process--graph paper, rulers, test field markings--are also included, appearing strangely out of place amid the lush green foliage of the rainforest. The core practice of the natural sciences is to collect in order to inspect closely in the service of public knowledge. Collecting implies taming and containment, traits shared to some extent by photography. With her gentle humor, Kannisto recognizes and utilizes the constraints of science and art alike, investigating the concept of truth in photography to challenge how we view and "know" the natural world.

One of the questions asked during this anniversary year is whether or not the implementation of the Convention reflects the vision of its authors. In other words, has it led to the positive changes its drafters envisaged? What steps have been taken to reach the four main goals of the Convention: support sustainable systems of governance for culture; achieve a balanced flow of cultural goods and services and increase the mobility of cultural professionals; integrate culture in sustainable development frameworks; and promote human rights.

The medium of photography, once reserved for a few professionals, has become ubiquitous in our digital and globalised age. Everyone at any time – whether with mobile, webcam or digital camera – takes shots of people and their immediate environs without needing any great expertise.In order to defy the inflationary omnipresence of the photograph in our everyday life, artists who today decide on the medium of photography have to develop new concepts. The 41 young photographers introduced in this publication convincingly show how they have found new ways in the 'domain of photography' to put their mind's-eye visions into practice.The Swiss duo, Tonk allow the camera to become part of an object; the Berliner, Maziar Moradi, devotes himself to documenting the life of immigrants in their alienated surroundings; Martin Denker helps himself to the world of gaming zones and avatars, while Olaf Otto Becker, Sanna Kannisto or Elina Brotherus transform traditional landscapes, e.g., by artificial lighting or the integration of biographical elements.English and German text.
