Billed as "a visual exploration of Sampha’s album Process" in a press release, the zine includes photographs from the artist's own personal archive plus images taken in Freetown, Sierra Leone by Durimel. Freetown is the city where Sampha's parents come from and where many members of his family still live. There is also a look at his life in Morden, the London suburb that Sampha grew up in after his after his parents relocated to the U.K.

The 32 page, full color zine is said to build on the themes of Process, the short film created in collaboration with director Kahlil Joseph.
