What’s in the box? Instead of a conventional magazine format, we continue to package Contributor in a box. Inside you’ll find a selection of large prints in two different sizes and one poster. We’re thrilled to have the actress Katherine Waterston on the cover. Waterston’s lived-in, full-bodied, and palpable commitment is why she’s become a reliable source for a variety of directors looking to infuse their characters with a visceral complexity, a nuanced humanity, that’s difficult to find elsewhere.
