Rucksack Magazine is an online journal and printed bi-annual publication. We celebrate both written & visual storytelling and are driven by our passion for adventure and photography. We began in 2016 as an online journal and have recently printed our fourth volume of Rucksack Magazine; The Pursuit Issue. Our online journal is divided into stories, photo essays, photographer interviews and brand features. We work as a platform for new and emerging photographers and writers, connecting a global community of creative storytellers. Our brand has no limits, no boundaries; it is there for those with a thirst for adventure, those who want to create something new, something exciting. It is there to inspire, to excite and to mesmerise.
Volume Six: Endless
The stories in this issue explore the theme of endless; deserted landscapes stretching beyond the limits of our imagination.
Through ‘Endless’ we showcase vast, open deserts, desolate wastelands and roads cutting through dunes into the horizon. With visual stories from places such as the Namib Desert, Death Valley, and the Atacama, our pages glow with that fractured gleam of long, intense sunsets. It is easy to celebrate their effortless beauty, but we also explore the reality of what it means to face something that feels endless, and the negatives that can sit alongside this.
Sometimes it is just as important to have an ending in sight, to have something concrete to progress towards. We realise that often, we need a beginning and an end to provide significance and meaning, and that the absence of these can result in deep uncertainty.
