Modern day love dramatically differs from the romance of yesteryear due to courtship via digital means. While this is certainly not the case for everyone and their relationships, social media and hook-up apps undeniably play a huge part in navigating today’s love landscape. A new publication, created by Clara Bradley, looks to explore how digital communications have affected the way we love with a little help from some talented folk.
A collection of artists, photographers, writers and designers have contributed to Tenderness Journal. Producing a tangible piece of print media that explores the implications of digital media is interesting in itself; perhaps the old ways are the best? We’ll soon find out. Along with the book launch there will also be an exhibition of the artists’ photographs at Fitzroy’s latest venue dedicated to the arts scene, Grey Gardens Projects. Contributors to Tenderness include James Andrews, Kiah Pullens, Kirrilee Bailey, Clara Bradley, Benjamin Chadbond, Hugh Coldwell-Ross, Mim Connell, Melissa Edwards and many others.
