What We’ve Found: Heat Wave

We’re so thrilled to share this month’s selection of submissions for ‘What We’ve Found’.

What we’ve found is that Summer has many hazy visual associations. Whether its that glistening evidence of sweat, a refreshing (or necessary) dip in the pool, sand in every crevice, tan lines, grass stains, an afternoon wet-pavement scented thunderstorm, or an 8pm sunset.  What we’ve found is that Summer, though fleeting, is something worth exploring through a more permanent medium. Summer exists as three months of adolescent freedom, three months of outrageous power bills, and three months that we crave when we’re not in them. The submissions proved that summer reminds us of our humanistic qualities that are consistently relatable. What we’ve found is y’all are documenting your summer in the most visually eloquent way possible. We couldn’t be happier with these submissions.
