Letter From the Editor This issue will basically mark this magazine’s first birthday. I can’t believe that it’s been that long already. I’ve had such an incredible experience putting together The Unexposed over the past year- getting to be in conversation with incredible artists from all over the world, collaborating to put together a singular piece of work for the whole world to enjoy. It has certainly been an experience, and definitely a greater one than I was expecting a year ago. That’s the tricky thing about the future. For this issue, I’ve asked the artists to look ahead into the future and create what they see, for themselves, for others, for the planet. As time ticks on, it seems as though the future has been on everybody’s mind and although one cannot predict the future, it doesn’t hurt to try. I for one, am predicting big changes for The Unexposed in the coming year as it continues to grow and continues to provide emerging artists with a place to start.
