Together with local art students Jade, Emi and Molly we created a short story about the young queer community searching for their safe space around town. Emi: “London has always had a complicated relationship with queer identities, and as a queer person finding spaces to exist in comfortably is a task in itself. People will try to tell you the UK is a safe progressive haven for LGBT+people, but more and more gay clubs and spaces are being used by predatory creeps, trans people are waiting months for healthcare and hate crime is on the rise. As long as we’ve told there’s no space for us, we try to build spaces for ourselves.” Photographed by Tom Marshak.

Despite religion losing influence on a large part of society today we can all agree on the importance it had in the past. It held people together and tried to find an explanation for the things people weren’t able to explain to themselves. Observe photographer Zarina Sembinova and creative director Nurtas Sissekenov creating a dynamic fantasy world in which past and present coexist.
