The magazine’s theme explores the notion of a safe place, leading individuals to question where they find their security in. During such a crazy period as COVID-19 and nationwide lockdowns, this pandemic certainly left many individuals feeling vulnerable, lost, and afraid. During times when everything around us seems to be going from bad to worse, the only thing to do is to tap into whatever it is that makes us feel guarded, this can be a thought, a memory, a person, a specific object, or a particular place/ space.

The magazine features the work of five diverse African Photographers like Kyle Malanda and her project ‘ABSENTIA’, Nelson Owoicho and his project ‘Oyálé’, Léa Thijs and her project ‘Safe House’, KC Nwakalor and his project ‘Isolating With You Malichá’ and lastly Isabel Okoro and her project ‘Sister x3’.
