Within these pages you’ll find a collection of essays and photographs revolving around a common theme. In this first issue we’ll take a look at part of a project called Souls.

The main idea behind the project was that the City is like a pond. On the surface, ponds often appear to be murky and contaminated. What we are really seeing is a small surface coating of muck hiding the clean, clear water underneath. In fact, the majority of the water is still clear, it’s just hidden from view.

Life in the City is much the same. We see the homelessness, the grime, the degradation. We miss that this is just the surface. What remains hidden underneath is the beautiful soul of the City. We ought to remember that the crowd we see is nothing less than a sea of souls. Each soul has the beautiful dignity of working out its salvation as we play minor parts in each other’s lives.
