Introducing Issue Twenty-Eight

The summer issue of Kinfolk untangles the theme of hair. Beyond a narrative of love and loss, we examine the ways in which hair has come to hold deep and powerful meanings in daily life as a site of self-expression and a repository of cultural identity.

We meet Jagmeet and Gurratan Singh, two politicians—and brothers— taking on Trudeau in Toronto, spend a day at work with the imam leading Copenhagen’s first feminist mosque, comb through a history of Diana Ross’ hair, and examine the appearance of hair in everything from forensic science to food.

Elsewhere in Issue Twenty-Eight, we pay a visit to the Antwerp studio of painter Rinus Van de Velde, meet professional problem solver Helen Nonini, speak to rising Korean fashion designer Shinhye Suk, and unpack subjects as diverse as matchmaking, regret, rocks and more.
