HABITAT: NATURE, CHARACTER, TERRITORY AND BELONGING
This issue will explore the theme of habitat through various photographic practices, ranging from reportage to conceptual art. In a time of massive globalisation and instant information, how do we define what is our ‘natural’ environment? How do we ensure long-term benefits through sustainability, from the environmental and from a cultural point of view?
The term ‘Habitat’ can be further expanded into notions of identity, migration, assimilation and environment. This theme comes at a time of grave ecological concern and retrospection around the world, looking at the larger global picture of natural as well and man made disasters. At a time when the global population is ever increasing, how do people adapt to a scarcity of resources?
Habitat can also be an internal landscape of sorts, exploring themes of intimacy and belonging.
