Rucksack #3

Rucksack Magazine is an online journal and printed bi-annual publication. We are driven by our passion for photography, storytelling and discovery of the outdoors. The magazine journeys to the corners of our planet to pursue fascinating stories about rural pursuits. We began in 2016 as an online journal and we have just printed our first magazine; The Winter Issue. Our journal is divided into articles, stories, photo essays and interviews exploring photographers, creatives and outdoor places. We work as a platform for new and emerging writers, photographers, artists and entrepreneurs, connecting a global community of creative professionals and storytellers.

Volume Three: The Island Issue

The stories in this issue are about islands; perfect in their isolation. 

In The Island Issue we explore the raw beauty to be found in the rugged landscape of the Faroe Islands; how a change in the weather can result in an altered perspective of a familiar place. The second part of the magazine uncovers the theme of isolation through a variety of other islands; Svalbard, Lofoten and Newfoundland providing the perfect setting with which to do so. The lava covered volcanoes of Hawaii coupled with the jagged rocks of the Isle of Skye and St Hilda transport us into a Jurassic Era long forgotten. Our stories explore what it truly means to inhabit an island where being surrounded by water is a daily reminder of complete isolation.
