About the publication
Dirty is a new print/ digital publication from India that brings new worlds together for observers to immerse and lose themselves in. The bi-annual book sheds skin every six months, taking on a singular theme with each new edition. Expanding and contracting with bursts of intensity, it shows you exactly what it wants you to see, but stops short of telling you what to think. Drenched in the messy guts of Indian youth culture, dirty stories rearrange perspectives to present a point of view that’s both reflective and radical. Merging imagery and text to dance between confusion and irreverence, history and hunger, exposure and vulnerability, dirty is presented without comment.
In this latest issue, dirty plays with the idea of freedom through the lens of students. A space where one is allowed to explore all aspects of their creativity, a time that offers you no boundaries, only the occasional questioning. This issue made (almost) entirely by students aims to celebrate the nostalgia one feels for their student days, when we were all truly free, before the commercialization of dreams, when we explored ideas and aspirations for the kind of success that might someday buy us similar freedom.
