UP + RISING is a zine brought to you by i-D magazine.
Some words from i-D on this very special issue: “UP + RISING is a celebration of extraordinary Black voices, and the first chapter of i-D’s 40th anniversary issue (1980-2020). i-D chronicled over 100 activists and artists, musicians and writers, photographers and creatives, in Atlanta, Baltimore, Minneapolis, LA, London, New York, Paris and Toronto. The portfolio was photographed by 17 Black artists, from established names such as Tyler Mitchell, who photographed the indomitable Indya Moore, to 18-year-old Nuvany David, who photographed 12-year-old up and rising star Keedron Bryant, alongside such legendary activists and politicians as Stacey Abrams and Patrisse Cullors, shot in Atlanta by Kristen Powell. This is a document of this moment in time, chronicling the power and inspiration of this movement in their own words. It’s a vital, moving and important record of the political upheavals of 2020.”
