Orion Magazine Autumn 2019

In this issue, “The Solitary Garden” follows an innovative artist who invites incarcerated people to imagine growing things and then manifests their vision on the outside; in “The Animal Inside,” John Freeman addresses the connection between inequality among humans and inequality among the earth’s species; Thomas Linzey tracks communities that are challenging assumptions about the United Status legal system in “Filling the Democracy Gap,”; David Gessner dispatches in “Hurricane Diary” after ten days in the Carolinas and three feet of rain; the “Essence of Lavender” is a story by Katrina Vandenberg about healing and deceit, told through lavender essential oils; Craig Childs tracks cross-border migrations between desert and sea in “Shell Trade”; in “Gods Among Us,” Terry Tempest Williams illustrates that humanity is not the center of the universe but part of an expanding, contracting, and uncertain future; Andrea Carrubba sends images and text about prisoners and their families in a Bolivian jail; and we interview illustrator and graphic novelist Chris Ware.

Lay of the Land includes a story about a grandmother’s love for clouds as her memory becomes clouded by dementia, backpacking as a woman of color, borderland game cameras and jaguars in Arizona, the art and necessity of seed collecting, and owl tracking during a meteor shower.
