Reflections is a biannual zine created by editorial studio Roxy + Tjade to make space for exploration and collaboration. For The Romance Issue, R + T invited their friends and community to create something together, within their own terms and free of the fancy of others – using filmmaking, photography, playlists, adventure, friendship, queer love, muses and sweet summer days as inspiration.

Next to showcasing creative writing by Roxy Merrell and two photo series by Tjade Bouma, issue 01 features work by photographer and filmmaker Lucas van der Rhee, writer and poet Britt McGillivray, illustrator Adri Peralta and poet Julia-Beth Harris.
