This Week From The Editor

Who we are, what we do, and why there is truth to our existence, are mostly in relation to something; with regard to someone; vis-à-vis a natural propensity towards the profound experience of inter-species dependencies. How does one seek this truth illuminating our interconnectedness, the deeply extant human veracity of love?

Face to Face

The complexity of bonds, the ambivalence of relations, and the cultivation of exchanges, often face-to-face, and heart-to-heart, vis-à-vis the socio-cultural, creative landscape, displays our reverential appetite for connections.

Our issue this week maps creative ventures nurtured in relation to another: ‘Love Songs’ presents works of 16 photographers capturing the scenography of love; Raymond Neutra speaks of his father Richard Neutra, vis-à-vis his modernist architecture; the 'Cities' traces Peter Cook's interest in the theoretical field of architecture via drawings.

How determinedly do we tend to the intimacy of thinking, probing, and learning, vis-à-vis creative stirrings?
