This issue explores the question “What does it mean to be human?” An expansive topic, but a crucial question regarding the rapidly shifting landscape of our cultural geography, and the contemporary lenses of perception. The cover of this Fifth issue is a portrait of Twins by Photographer Noga Shtainer, which made a series of photos to shine a light on the infamous frequency of twin births in a Brazilian village.
If it wasn’t for the soft cover, you could easily mistake this publication for a book rather than a magazine. The quality of the printing is incredible.
