But the following bit of text breaks down the next theme.. for more information on what the Quarterly is and submission guidelines feel free to visit http://www.thequarterly.co.uk/submissions/ 

Life & Culture:

Culture is life and life is culture. The two are forever entwined with one another. From the way we live out our lives, the people we interact with, from your family, to your friends, your colleagues, the way you talk, who you talk to & the way you dress or choose not to dress. The beliefs we have, the beliefs impressed upon us and to the traditions we receive, carry and pass on throughout our entire lives. What is it that compels us to become part of a group, to share the same ideas and mannerisms as others do? What does it mean to belong? where do trends, friendships & communities come start and finish. What are the train of thoughts what brings people together, what pulls them apart. It’s about discovery, it’s about learning, it’s about sharing and belonging. Where does life begin and where does it end..

We’re looking for editorials and stories to share from a tattoo parlour to where the clientele are addicted to getting inked, to the tattooist doing the deed and loving what they do, are you up for chasing after some hells angels? Is it a cancer ward, where everyone is fighting the same fight, brought together by illness and unfortunate circumstances, but having the balls to stand up and embrace it? Perhaps you’d like to capture a circus, a day in the life, a month or even a moment.. The congregation.. Perhaps add a little drama to proceedings, bring the spotlight to something that’s incredibly close to your heart or explore what you don’t understand either from a far or up close.. share a personal perspective or one you’ve never heard before. Show it in a new light, your light, your way..

For the next issue of the Quarterly we want to explore different lives, different communities and different cultures, to celebrate or raise awareness of, to be informative, or reveal a glimpse of. The only limit is your imagination. Whether it’s fashion focused, photojournalism, documentary, landscape, film. the written word. We’re open to suggestion and happy to discuss.
