"I’m convinced that to look back like this, while always in part an act of grief, is first and foremost a celebration. The past, humming with the attention we give it, repays us in kind - by reminding us of how far we’ve come. Now, and perhaps for a while yet, this will be our challenge, to take solace in memory."

During lockdown in London (having printed Mexico and replotted our issues dedicated to Greece and Wales) I found myself desperate to create. It wasn't about making the lockdown time count, more about finding ways to slow down, look back and seek beauty - and to offer a platform to some of the creatives who have been so generous with their time and talent over the years. And so the team and I began work on Lodestars Anthology Postcards - a 144 page photo book featuring archival work from across the world, paired with musings on life, travel and the wonders of photography.
