If you know your indies you’ll immediately recognise the names of Epoch founders Francesca Gavin and Léonard Vernhet—both have had their names attached to multiple magazines.
This is their first self-published magazine, a big, bold thought-provoking attempt to cross-pollinate disciplines and link subjects often regarded as opposites: art and science, archeology and music, anthropology and fashion. Their argument is that traditional ideas of linear history are outdated; we need a new way to explain human civilisation.
The theme of the issue is Ritual, and the highly visual result mixes contemporary images by the likes of Wolfgang Tillmans and Taryn Simon alongside archive material from the distant past.
