I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

“Midwest Sentimental” by Photographer Nathaniel Grann

Originally from Minnesota, photographer and editor Nathaniel Grann currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. “Midwest Sentimental”, made during three years spent living back home with his mother and stepfather in central Minnesota, is an exploration of the intricacies of family relationships and the bonds that hold them together.

Comprised of staged portraits, domestic scenes, self-portraits, and snapshots, the making of this work was a collaborative effort, based on shared recollections. “I had naively hoped to find answers while working through this body of work; instead, my work simply allowed myself and my family the feeling of a collective exhale—a moment of release and reflection”, Grann explains. The series was published as a monograph by Peperoni Books in 2018.
