Jo Ractliffe: Terreno Ocupado (signed - rarity)
Five years after the end of Angola's decades-long civil war, Jo Ractliffe travelled to the country's capital city of Luanda for the first time, entering what was for her, she writes in her introduction, 'largely a place of myth'. Her photographs - of townships and tented camps, the sprawling market of Roque Santeiro, the beach at Ilha, murals and monuments - reflect the impact of war on the urban context while, as Okwui Enwezor notes in his accompanying essay, avoiding documentary literalism.
