"With the end of a tumultuous, difficult year fast approaching on the horizon, a sense of change grows more manifest as we count down the last days of 2020. We’re of course not just speaking of wintry weather here in the northern hemisphere, but rather of the formidable societal expectations that have built on since entering the new millennium, made it seems only more blatant and urgent after an unprecedented global pandemic. Perhaps a new awareness for our great, common interconnectedness as earthlings can endure from it, as one big sour but potent historical fruit from which to feed world’s hungriness for change. This might exactly be the hopeful underlying narrative of this inaugural 2021 JRNL Issue envisioned by Jacqueline Bates and Erica Deeman, offering far reaching photographic rhymes ricochetting across many cultures, and beyond any gendered or racial divide.
