    Abstract

    Edge of a Dream is a new publication from Affram Books. It discusses contrasting ideas of utopia in recent landscape photography, and in the context of global capitalism. The book considers how such photography might contest received ideas such as property, community, beauty and land. Photography from visual artists Simryn Gill, Mandy Lee Jandrell, Virginia Nimarkoh and David Spero provides the catalyst for new critical writing by Anthony Iles, Kate Soper and John Wood, with an introductory text by Paul Halliday. This timely publication will be of value to those with an interest in contemporary photography, the environment and the politics of landscape. Edge of a Dream is the culmination of an Arts Humanities Research Council funded project organised by Camberwell College of Arts and Goldsmiths, University of London.
