The covers feature striking original images of landscapes created by some of the United Kingdom’s most famous artists and photographers. The artists commissioned for this project were David Hockney, Nadine Ijewere, Tim Walker, Nick Knight, Lubaina Himid, Mert Alas, David Sims, Marcus Piggott, Jamie Hawkesworth, Juergen Teller, Alasdair McLellan, Martin Parr, David Bailey and Craig McDean. (David Hockney/Vogue) Enninful explained that “British Vogue’s August Issue, Reset, and the 20-page story ‘All Across the Land’, is not only beautiful and poignant but also highlights that at the core of everything is our planet.
The corresponding article in each magazine accompanying the landscapes is a poignant piece about how the coronavirus pandemic has changed and is continuing to change the world as we know it.
English writer and naturalist Helen Macdonald writes, “The familiar patterns of our lives have been broken, the future is unknowable, and all of us are searching for signs and wonders, for reassurance, for hope, for things that make sense to us when everything seems desolate. We are beginning to view nature through new eyes."
She muses that now people "can connect with the natural world much closer to home.”
The original pieces of art are going to be auctioned off to raise money for COVID-19-focused charities at the end of the year.
