Our third issue explores The Blues, both as a colour and a concept. Rich in interpretation, this issue takes you through the shades of blue in nature, to sacred spaces where melancholy and nostalgia hang in the air. We float in shallow waters and plunge deep into dark seas – enjoying the calm and embracing the chaos.
This issue unpacks The Blues as they exist today, and how they visit and influence the work of our contributors. With a theme near to so many people, these pages hold intimate thoughts and vulnerable moments, guiding you through themes of beauty, struggle and hope.
This issue has a special place in our hearts. While they may blind you to it during their presence, there’s beauty worth celebrating in The Blues. So next time you’re swimming in blue, we hope these pages comfort you and remind you that you are not alone.
Embrace The Blues.
For the month of January we washed our platforms blue to celebrate the release of Issue 3: The Blues, and to extend the dialogue on this important theme beyond just our contributors. The Blues visit all of us – visually, but also on a deeper emotional level. The tone and intensity may vary, but we are all blue, at one point or another.
