The third issue from Primary Paper looks at the theme of ‘Environment’. The natural, the social and the physical. A topic with increasing relevance and significant importance today.
In the issue, curators Coquito Cassibba and Jessica McGowan explore the effect of our personal surroundings on the art we make and the stories we tell. They asked contributors to offer their own unique perspective on the theme of Environment. Transcending beyond the immediate, and finding inspiration in culture, community and place.
The desire for the issue is two-fold—the editors want to celebrate the beauty of our environment while also creating conversations to promote awareness and social change. In a conscious effort to consider their own impact, this issue is printed using FSC™ certified paper stocks and processes. Clothing from the fashion stories was either vintage, repurposed or rented, from as many sustainable sources as possible.
