Issue 40: Nowhere Near


(Limited number of print copies left)

Sometimes we find ourselves nowhere near the place we most want to be. In that moment we stand on the border between isolation and solitude, loneliness and being alone. 

Issue No: 40 is an invitation to encounter art and story on what it means to be nowhere near—nowhere near familiarity, a sense of belonging, family, or even nowhere near ourselves. Join us in discovering new insights that emerge when we're willing to gaze into the faraway.
