Faire Magazine, Issue 2.
In today’s world of social media, creative work can happily reach a global audience, but many artists find it creatively debilitating. Work is reduced to “content,” and everything becomes ephemeral and forgettable. We never truly see past the perfect frame or scratch the surface of what makes our favorite creatives tick.
At FAIRE, we want to create something joyfully physical, something to be treasured, a magazine you take your time to read and return to in moments of reflection.
Inside Issue 2 are 12 exceptionally beautiful long-form stories celebrating the creative lives and work of a diverse group of artists, artisans and creatives from around the world. Including:
