As our first themed edition, the issue represents an exciting development for the magazine. We opted for the important yet contentious subject, National Identity, a topic that deserves careful consideration in light of recent events. We hope that the projects and articles shared in issue 10 alongside a season of online content will provide new insight on the subject.

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, hoping to make sense of the subject after her challenging graduate project, To Catch a Thief. 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, titled Trigger Trash.

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

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.

Our regular features Centrefold and Portrait Page have been filled with on-theme submissions from Tristan Poyser and Mark Leaver respectively.

And finally this issues Turning Point is a heartfelt image and text from Jenny Lewis, and Gemma Padley’s Book Review has expanded to a write-up of 4 book dummies, that were submitted as part of our open call earlier this year.

We’re all proud of this new chapter in the life of Loupe, and hope you enjoy the issue.
