About the book
The June issue of DOUBLE DOUBLE weaves together three places: Istanbul, Hong Kong and Cape Breton through series of photographs, encounters, prose and poetry. Under this context, words and images crossed borders, overlapping, prompting the collected materials to evolve into an ensemble — a new piece of rendering, a new reading experience.

Lee Ka-sing’s images of Istanbul, taken during a trip in 2018, ran through the whole book; intercepted twice by Holly Lee’s poems on Istanbul. Chad Tobin then emerges with his deeply moving photographs of Robert Frank, followed by another arresting suite of black and white portraits from Cape Breton. In the last section, Holly Lee’s essay “Island” puts forward a coda to the score.
