Now Is the Time
August / September Issue

International

Now Is the Time. This modest sentence is the driving force behind Aesthetica Magazine’s August / September issue. It’s a phrase that is bold and empowering. It is a call to action. Beyond lockdown, the economic downturn and the climate crisis, we must stand united in support of Black Lives Matter. As a global community, we must change.
