“[T]o make a direct recording of the landscape would be to record everything the experience of standing there was not about, and nothing that it was about. I have no interest in a direct, “accurate” representation of nature. I am more interested in the truth of a photograph.”

Strant is beginning a new series titled Pictures Without Words–the idea being the desire for as much intersubjective agreement as possible. Submissions deadline is 01/31/17. The series will begin publication early 2017 with Pictures Without Words, Volume 001.
Family Faith Food is a culmination of three online issues from Strant Magazine published over the course of 2015. Each issue considered family, faith, and food individually. Family Faith Food coalesces the three online issues into one print publication and reconsiders how the three topics inform one another.
