Love Issue now in print: What Do You Miss?

Love Issue

Our regular visitors know that I’m a fan of Oitzarisme, the blog from Constantin Nimigean about photography. And from his magazine Love Issue. It is about Love & Issues.
Recently he published the first Love Issue edition in print. The first six editions were online only.
And this first print edition is great again. Reading and watching a magazine is a completely different experience than online. Seclude yourself is something we no longer know that good.

You can order Love Issue #7 here.

This Issue contains ten beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking, photographic reports and series. From ten different photographers.
Like ‘Couple Clothing’ from Erik Nauman. The title covers it completely.
Snog is a serie by Rankin. Snog in a very literal way.

And what I like the most is ‘What do you miss’ from Ioana Cîrlig.
It is a collection of portraits and Polaroids from women in the Târgșor prison in Romania.
See some of them below.

Ioana Cîrlig: “I wanted to find out what they think about the stuff they can’t do while they’re inside. What they miss especially the litle things like taking a walk in the park or having a beer on a terrace.
I took a Polaroid of one of the the things they said they miss. I show the Polaroids next to the portrait.
