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.
The stories in this issue are about pursuit; a never-ending search influenced and shaped by our experience of life.
In ‘The Pursuit Issue’ we explore what it means to be constantly chasing and searching. Through both written and visual stories, we uncover the pursuit of light, happiness, places, dreams and relationships. We visit the Pacific Northwest, Arizona and California, providing the perfect backdrop through which to pause, reflect and further explore our pursuits. We interview photographer Emilie Ristevski and Christian Watson of 1924us, and discuss what pursuit means to them, and how this has influenced their work. Our stories search for meaning in our pursuits, and as we journey through life, we realise that perhaps this is our greatest pursuit of all.This publication is 136 pages, perfect bound and printed on uncoated, 100% recycled paper. Printed and published in London April 2019.
