Big Issue January/February 2018

Introducing The Big Issue #260
INTRODUCING
THE BIG ISSUE #260
The Big Issue #260 (January to February 2018­­­­) is available from your favourite vendor across the city. Be sure not to miss out on a fantastic art and photography issue.

Our theme for this issue is ‘Neighbourhoods of the World’. Thanks to contributions from the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards, we catch a glimpse into neighbourhoods from around the globe, including Cape Town and Havana, Cuba (see page 4). Each photograph tells its own story.

If you’re a nature lover, look out for our wildlife photography (see page 16). Our stunning cover image of a puffin with a mouthful of sand eels was captured by Nigel Hodson on a trip to Skomer Island in Wales.
We also reached out to several local photographers (see page 14) and artists (see page 22) who graciously granted us access into communities that they’ve captured in recent years. We hope that you will be as intrigued and delighted by their work as we have been.

Bumper Big Issue 2017/18 bring holiday cheer

Introducing The Big Issue #259
INTRODUCING
THE BIG ISSUE #259
The Big Issue #259 (Nov 2017 to Jan 2018­­­­) is available from your favourite vendor across the city. Be sure not to miss out a fantastic bumper year-end issue.

Our vendors will be working extra hard during December to generate the income they need to provide for their families over the holiday season. Many of the Big Issue entrepreneurs aim to sell additional magazines over this period in order to visit their families in other provinces around the country.
In previous years, we’ve published a collector’s edition in December, featuring outstanding South African figures. This year, we’ve decided to take a different approach with our bumper year-end edition. We’re taking a look at what the holidays mean and how we can all help out to spread the festive cheer. We have everything from beach reads for every family member to Christmas shopping with a difference.

Look out for details of our Big Issue Back-to-School Drive, in aid of our vendors’ children (see page 9).
