Near Window

Near window started out as a semi-daily post on this blog and has since morphed into something greater.

At first I had a few friends who wanted to write guest posts for the blog, which was amazing, but then i though why not start curating my friends’ work throughout lockdown and beyond, a view from behind the nearest window out onto the world beyond.

The first édition Near Window 1 is LIVE and you can find it here. Pssssst… Submissions are open for edition 2
