Sapien Magazine is all about exploring what it means to be human, behind the screen, the phones and the personas we often create for ourselves or others. We seek to delve into human emotions, both the good and bad, and the role they play in our daily lives. To explore the failures or flaws that often come before, as well as alongside, the successes of final products. Sapien is about people who are makers, people who work desk jobs, people who have hobbies and people who aren’t afraid to show what kind of lives they lead. We serve to inspire people by discovering others who have stories just like our own.
Every story and photo has two sides, we are here to tell both.
