About Lenses & Light (131st edition)

We each see the world through different lenses. Our identity and background, our personal insights, shed light on our vision of the world. Every perspective brings a new light. Perspective, like light, reflects and refracts.

While creating for the 131st edition, consider these questions:

  • How do perspectives change in different contexts? How does our concept of our surroundings change in a different light?
  • How do darkness and light complement and contrast each other? How do darkness and light filter through a different lens?
