Details:
Know Mag is an ongoing publication project that I conceptualized and started in my final year at RISD, as a part of my MFA Thesis. Each issue of the magazine is focused on one person - focusing on objects that they carried with them when they move away from home, and investigating the conflict and difference between identity and identification and the blurry line that seperates them.

I asked the subjects of each issue to locate objects or artefacts that they brought with them, and photographed them holding these objects. The publication also includes snippets of our conversations, as well as my writing about how objects become anchors for identity, and a window into many textured histories.
