Kinfolk Volume 28

Issue Twenty-Eight

The summer issue of Kinfolk untangles the theme of hair. Beyond a narrative of love and loss, we examine the ways in which hair has come to hold deep and powerful meanings in daily life: its presence as a unifying and defining symbol in cultural, political and spiritual spheres, plus its intimate rituals and rich, eccentric history.

We meet Jagmeet and Gurratan Singh, two politicians—and brothers—taking on Trudeau in Toronto, spend a day at work with the imam leading Copenhagen’s first feminist mosque, comb through a history of Diana Ross’ hair, and examine the appearance of hair in everything from forensic science to food.

Elsewhere in Issue Twenty-Eight, we pay a visit to the Antwerp studio of painter Rinus Van de Velde, meet professional problem solver Helen Nonini, speak to rising Korean fashion designer Shinhye Suk, and unpack subjects as diverse as matchmaking, regret, rocks, and more.
