True Issue 6

by True


True is a photography journal that showcases the unpublished personal projects of established and emerging photographers.

Unconstrained by commercial focus, it sets different parameters for the creative conversation between publication and contributor.

True issue six (February 2019) sees Jim Goldberg visiting China, showcasing the narrative he found as an outsider experiencing the cultural and geographical enormity of the country for the very first time. British-born Kalpesh Lathigra documents Mumbai from a similar perspective, photographing the complex relationship with his ancestral homeland known only through memories handed down through his family.

For the second cover story Arnaud Lajeunie and Georgia Pendlebury document summer in Burgundy through the eyes of three teenagers – none of whom had met before — and Thomas Albdorf presents a series of ‘found sculptures’ that are not quite what they seem.

Elsewhere in the issue we see a selection of Brendan Freeman's holiday snaps, Peter Puklus explores his personal outlook on social expectations and male obligations, and Jenna Westra presents a continuation of her ongoing project, ‘Atlas’.

Jo Ann Callis shares unseen images from the same period as her enigmatic portfolio, ‘Early Color’, showing constructed everyday moments subtly charged with pleasure, tension and physicality. And Camille Vivier creates a fictional, feminine world of contrasts, shot in Geneva and the forest of Fontainbleu.
