It's Freezing in LA – Issue 9

Select Title

IFLA! is an independent magazine with a fresh perspective on climate change. Too often, environmental discussion is polarised into one of two categories: the remote, technical language of science, or the hotheaded outrage of activism. We find the middle ground, inviting writers and illustrators from a variety of fields to give us their take on how climate change will affect — and is affecting — society.

We want to help untangle the climate tensions and choices that our generation will have to navigate by platforming as many different perspectives as we can find. IFLA! provides original, engaging and surprising content — widening environmental discussion and offering a range of vocabulary and insights not found elsewhere.


Issue 9: Health

Issue 9 of It’s Freezing in LA! explores the links between climate and health. Writing explores the unhealthy relationships humans have with their systems, looking at toxic materials, fast-fashion, climate anxiety, and recycling.

The graphic theme of IFLA! 9 looks at pollution – from the micro to the macro scales, from a puff of a cigarette to the billowing smoke clouds from a power station. The images depict pollution formally as ‘plumes’, as though viewing pollution as sculptures. These images were colourised in poison green against a neutral blue background. The overhead perspective in these images draws inspiration from the educational film by Charles and Ray Eames, Powers of Ten.
