“Shifting the Lens”

GBP 10.00 — Released 11 December 2017

The inaugural issue of Clove, themed ‘Shifting the Lens’, includes a feature examining the convergence of local and international forces in Bangladesh’s architectural landscape; an intimate conversation with internationally acclaimed photographer Juergen Teller alongside exclusive, never-before-seen photos from a series taken in Kolkata, India; a new piece of literary criticism responding to Arundhati Roy's highly anticipated latest novel; and an interview with Bibi Russell, one of the first South Asian models to capture the attention of Western haute couture back in the 1970s.

Thoughtful essays in the publication reflect on subjects ranging from Himalayan cuisine and post-colonial education to the politics of tea and the evolution of the sari. The magazine’s cover image highlights the Nepal Picture Library project which has collected over 52,000 photographs to document an inclusive visual history of Nepali people.
