Joe D moved to Philly from the Midwest in 1994 and still hasn’t gotten used to it. Philly is still just as mesmerizing as confusing. These photos represent and attempt to document that feeling. He can be found trying to get a picture of a laundromat sign or peeling paint or manhole covers. Follow him on Instagram: @rokojoe

I gravitate towards the blog as a mode of presentation because I like how the continuous accumulation of images creates a cinematic experience which can reveal narratives that unfold on a wider timescale.
Fabio Sassi started making visual artworks after varied experiences in music, writing and photography. He makes acrylics with the stencil technique on board, canvas, or other media. He uses logos, tiny objects and what is considered to have no worth by the mainstream. Fabio lives and works in Bologna, Italy.

Melissa MacAllister captures beauty all around her. She finds beauty in simple things that for others often form part of the background. She participates in the ritual of taking pictures every day. Melissa lives in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and has been a nanny for two girls for ten years. Her subject matter is often animals, the children she tends, landscapes, and self-portraits. @melissamariemac

JEFF HARRISON and MELISSA MacALLISTER
Three poems by Jeff Harrison:
Baron von Greedy,
Tho quite shy,
Can be seen from miles away
Who here is subdued?
Well, the spider
Is still somewhat subdued
The birth of Venus
It’s a foggy season

MARSHA ROSENZWEIG PINCUS photography:
"Homage to Georgia"
"Gods in Trees"
Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus retired from teaching high school in Philadelphia after 34 years to pursue her own writing. As fate would have it, she developed writers block. So she bought a camera, enrolled in art classes, and found new ways of representing her inner life. Her mixed media collages appeared at the Muse Gallery in Philadelphia last winter.
Reflections and Refractions grows from my interests in Jungian psychology, and the relationship between word and image. I believe that images which come to us from the collective unconscious connect with people in deep and meaningful ways. I am currently working on a book that includes poems, and stories written by others in dialogue with these and other photographs from the series.
Our next deadline is September 1 for inclusion in the October or November issues. We fill issues on an as received basis so submit early for inclusion in October’s multimedia issue. All published work is in consideration for our annual print issue, 3.1 (slated for spring 2013). Priority is given to collaborative and cross genre work.
