Kinfolk Issue Seventeen
Introducing the Family Issue
The autumn edition of Kinfolk explores the relationships we have with our nearest and dearest, in all of their iterations. We ask some big questions: How is photography changing the way we construct our family narratives? Should we feel guilty about speaking to our barista more than our sister? And did our parents actually have any idea what they were doing?
Our concept of family is deeply personal and forever evolving. No matter what kind of family we come from or the type of family we want to create ourselves, there’s no longer a universal concept of “normal.” There’s no ubiquitous manual to consult, rules to follow or boxes to check.
Well, maybe just a few: love, understanding, empathy and support. And perhaps a little patience.
160 pages, offset-printed and perfect bound, full color on uncoated paper. Printed in Canada.
