Issue #7917 Virtual Reality

The cover of our first issue of the year is an image from Arko Datto’s ‘Kings of a Bereft Land’.

Shot in the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna Delta, Datto’s series addresses the climate crisis and shifting landscapes through the use of infrared film, creating ominous photographs of those who bear the brunt of global emission rises.

It’s at night that the rising water becomes most terrifying, Datto tells BJP in our multi-artist print feature – when rising sea levels affect not just the physical land, but the psychology of the people who inhabit it.

Virtual Reality considers photography as a partial lens, both revealing the world and framing it in particular ways. This edition also includes a special focus on the SWANA region in our Intelligence essay section – plus profiles of Zed Nelson, Robert Zhao Renhui and Hanako Murakami.
