Issue 08: Face to Face

Spring/Summer 2022

$18.00

This issue offers a celebration of faces, bodies, and physical spaces, coming out after two years of seeing each other through masks and screens. Implying a certain amount of frankness, “Face to Face” does not shy away from confrontations. It’s a site for interrogating the conventions of portraiture and portrayal, while celebrating the beauty of the habits, interactions, emotions, and ideas that make us human.

Cover: Sheida Soleimani, Khooroos (rooster) named Manoocher (front) and Noon-o-namak (bread and salt) (back), 2021.
