We were thrilled to be able to chat to Matthew Freemantle recently, the man behind JRNL – ‘an online magazine experiment intent on finding and presenting the best journalism, photography, music and art in South Africa and abroad’. Designed as a platform for creatives to pool their resources online, JRNL is a must-read for local writers, photographers, artists and musicians.
