DIVERSITY NOW ISSUE,

SPRING/SUMMER 2020

 

We’re delighted to present our ninth issue,

‘Diversity Now’, for Spring/Summer 2020.

For this issue, we imagined a world in which the barriers and obstacles set by human decisions, and memories

imposed on others, are rendered inconspicuous. From the colourful Balogun Street Market in Nigeria

 to the Kigurumi costumed characters of Japan, we explore different stories and horizons on topics such as

gender fluidity, LGBTQI+ rights and racial representation.

Our cover story, ‘Maybe so, Maybe no’, shot by Marc Hibbert and styled by Benoît Bèthume.
