Issue 16th comes just in time for spring with titillating flowers lying on the pavement captured by Harley Weir in Doom and Bloom; Jack Davisons blossoming dreams; and a homage to the majesty and stillness of Mount Fuji, a collaborative feature including images by Nobuyoshi Araki, Wolfgang Tillmans, Brigitte Lacombe and Chris Rhodes among others.
Weve been flying kites in South-East France and visiting rural Mozambique through Cassi Namodas paintings. Amy Sherlock meets Alice Waters and Fanny Singer at their Berkeley family garden, a magical place from where the chef and activist has nurtured a new culinary culture rooted in plant-based ingredients. In Seasonal Harvest, Matthieu Lavanchy and Clarisse Demory show how food arrives at our homes, which is also the theme of a report by photographer Clara Balzary and activist Leydy Rangel on California farm workers. Another story echoes Ruth Asawas biography, an American born to Japanese immigrants whose passion for growing weaved through her personal life and also her sculptural works, as recalled by Hettie Judah.
We follow Laura Hawkinss correspondence with Wright Le Chapelain on the creation of their latest collection from a remote rural location in South Devon. We delve into artist Isabella Killorans mystical rituals connecting with nature and we invite young Mongolian artist Nomka Enkhee to illustrate some playful pages as an introduction to our regular Loose Leaves section.
Covers by Peter Jordanov, Jack Davison and Ruth Asawa.
