As our first themed edition, the issue represents an exciting development for the magazine. We opted for the important yet contentious subject, National Identity.

In another first, this issues cover feature is a series of new work commissioned by Loupe. Recent graduate Jasmine Bruno photographed masculinity in her home country of Italy. Jasmine discusses her motivations and findings with Sicilian photographer Mimi Mollica.

Tom Mauser, father to a boy who was tragically killed in the Columbine shootings, offers his thoughts on the question of gun ownership and the American constitution. His words are illustrated by Daniel George’s images of discarded items that have been used as targets for gun practice.

Rosie Wadey writes up fashion photographer Annie Lai’s images. In her ongoing project, Lai visits the homes of students of Chinese heritage who now live in London.

Olli Helmann’s images of people peering anxiously over a cliff, accompany a piece which argues that the Government has failed to consider the devastating effects of Brexit on the nation’s psyche, written by our anonymous ‘Westminster Insider’.

Andrew Canessa, principal investigator of the Bordering on Britishness project, discusses the development of national identity in Gibraltar. His words are accompanied by images from our very own founding editor, Luke Archer.
