Fieldfare #2

Fieldfare is an independent print journal published twice a year in the UK. It explores the idea of “a sense of place”—the things and people that make a place special or unique and that foster a sense of belonging.

Through a series of photo essays, travel features, personal essays, interviews and profiles of artists, gardeners and beautiful homes, we take a longer, slower look at what connects us.

Issue 2 of Fieldfare explores the idea of transience.

We discover the landscapes of West Texas, Spinalonga in Greece and Calabria in Italy. We visit a micro-apartment in Paris and the home of 18th-century silk designer Anna Maria Garthwaite in Spitalfields, London. We explore São Lourenço do Barrocal in the Alentejo region of Portugal, Kinloch Lodge on the Isle of Skye and the gardens of Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire. We hear from Afghan women's footballer Khalida Popal and visit the home of author Ingrid Weir in Hill End, New South Wales. We discover the encaustic art of Shannon Carlson, the lockdown portraits of Roseann Bath and the connection between food and identity in Taiwan with pastry chef and author Ying C. We contemplate themes of explore, impermanence, seek, nurture and connection.
