From a young age, identity is something we all struggle with at one point or another. Societal strains of what is expected versus what is, leaving many feeling trapped, seemingly without identity. There is no one way to combat this issue, however, tackling these constructs through artistic expression has been a healthy way for the creative to explore his or her identity.  In an age where what it means to be human is questioned daily, it’s important now more than ever that these individuals are recognized for what they create in an effort to spread the importance of self and one’s identity.

This issue takes the reader through the minds of artists who attempt to visualize the idea of identifying through the lens, in an effort to discover oneself.
