As a follow-up to yesterday’s behind the scenes essay, we thought it would be fitting to show a few of our deliberately staged images. Many of the photos we incorporate with the poems, stories, and essays we publish are collaged and heavily altered to better illustrate the written content. They are always, at the very least, cropped into squares. We’re taking this as an opportunity to show our comparatively unadulterated photographs the way we think they look best. Whether we’re trying to portray beauty or ugliness, sexuality or even simple shallowness, we always care about the intrinsic aesthetic. For a good read on hipster photography, which one could argue our images embody to a T, check out this article by @MarcoBohr. But enough words for once. On to the images…
