RE | Issue 19 | 2021


This is issue 19 of RE:, a magazine for everyone in Norton Rose Fulbright around the world and for our friends, among them our clients and alumni. We are in a time of transition, in the water where the manta rays swim, in the soil where we grow our fruits and our flowers, in the very air that we breathe, and the rain that falls. It’s all here for you. As is Verushka Reddy’s account of life in South Africa, Shauna Clark’s tale of growing up in Louisiana and Yui Ota’s invitation to dine in Yokohama. Dragonflies make a fleeting appearance, courtesy of Jonathan Chong, and we take pleasure in the artwork of M.A in Paris and the photographs of Moontashir Rahman in Toronto. A new writer joins us—Gunnar Benediktsson, writing on cinema—and one of our established writers, Kenneth Gray, brings us his playlist.

Today, we say farewell to two people. Natalia Mushinska was for ten years our Moscow correspondent. Her stringer's reports were a delight, her voice hugely distinctive. Ivan Maslarov was a founding member of RE’s creative team and instrumental in setting the tone of this magazine. In celebration of his prodigious talent, we invite you—in the photo essay—to an exhibition of his work.

The next issue will appear around the end of 2021.  See you then.
