Landscape-told Stories

BY JANET STEPHENSON
@ VOL 20 ON NOV 14, 2013

Janet Stephenson presents us with numerous idyllic photographs of the New Zealand tussock grasslands, and encourages us to question the subtle inconsistencies found within her photographs. She speaks specifically on the small creeks or "races" lining the hillsides, and at first inquires as to why they exist -- she then delves into the mysteries nature unveils.

Why Stories Matter

BY KIM YUHL
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

We live in a world brimming with stories. It begins in childhood when fairy tales shape our dreams. Stories happen in every kitchen, where recipes and family folklore are passed down from one generation to the next. We are surrounded by stories told through film, literature and music that comfort and inspire us. Stories help us communicate our beliefs while hoping others will embrace them. Kim Yuhl believes that this is why stories matter.
