vol. 5, issue 1: soft

Summer 2019

In some contexts, softness is a good thing; we think of soft skin, emotional intelligence, a safe space. In others, softness is code for weakness: easily swayed opinions, a lack of rigour or virility. We looked for submissions that ask questions about what it means to show softness onscreen.

Cover Art: Winnie Truong is a Toronto based artist working in pencil crayons on paper to produce large scale portraits that challenge our ideas of beauty and discomfort.
