Phox Pop Issue 4
|Publisher Names||by Phox Pop|
Phox Pop magazine Issue 4 is 96 (advertising-free) pages of stories about thinkers, seekers, makers, and doers.
Inside, readers will:
- Meet an artist whose work knows no limits (not time, not space, not scale), and the pensioner who didn’t let bureaucracy (or the 500-year-old foundations of a building) stand in her way.
- Hear from two different women finding fascinating connections between past, present, identity and place.
- Discover the expeditioner who shone a light on the lives of enslaved women, and the scientists uncovering enlightenment in Dark Ages medical texts.
- Plus, we speak to a formerly burnt-out creative now bursting with ideas, and delve into colour perception and how language influences what we see.
I like to think of Phox Pop magazine as a cabinet of curiosity in paper and ink form.
Phox Pop (foks pop)
Vox populi is a Latin phrase that literally means ‘voice of the people’; shortened to vox pop, in media it is an interview with members of the public, the ‘word on the street’. Replacing the ‘v’ with the ‘ph’ from photography – based on the Greek phos/light and graphê/drawing or writing – we create phox pop.
Through carefully-crafted words and striking images, Phox Pop tells the stories of ambitious and inspiring people, and their creative and curious pursuits.
Inside its ad-free pages, you will find tales of and by people from fields spanning art, science, history, exploration, and experimentation.
Phox Pop magazine is a free-range selection of stories that I would like to read myself, and I hope you will, too.
