The Anger Issue
Anger is universal, yet it can be displayed and interpreted in so many different ways.
It can be outward, with a spontaneous reaction, or it can be inward—repressed, controlled, deliberate. It can be mental, physical, or emotional. Anger can be quiet or loud, it can protect or destroy. Anger can be grief; it can be rage; it can be art; it can be healing. Anger sees no gender, color, or orientation. It is part of the human condition.
The author sits down with Collier Meyerson to discuss life in uncertain times. Photography by Adrienne Grunwald.
The award-winning photographer's most intimate work yet explores the stress of relationships, parenthood, and being a creative professional.

– Our story –
The Anxy Manifesto
Nearly half of American adults develop a mental illness in their lifetime; depression affects 350 million people worldwide. Yet the struggle to be well is still a shameful secret so many of us lock away—despite the fact that it drives us.
Anxy is changing that.
— AS FEATURED IN —
Anxy is a beautifully-designed magazine about our inner worlds—the ones we often refuse to share, the personal struggles, the fears that fool us into believing that the rest of the world is normal and we’re not.
Each issue of Anxy uses a central theme—“loneliness” or “boundaries”—to build an original, insightful, and creative perspective through interviews with folks we admire, personal essays, reported features, visual stories, and recommendations for what to read, watch and download to round out the conversation.
We launched on Kickstarter in September 2016, and raised money and support from hundreds of people who feel the same way as we do. Now we've created the magazine that dives into the real stories of how we live.
It isn’t your therapist’s scientific journal. It isn’t some self-help manual. And we aren’t telling you how to “fix” an issue. We are Anxy. Aren’t you?
