Rucksack Magazine / Volume 07


Rucksack Magazine celebrates written and visual
storytelling, driven by a passion for adventure and
photography.  Volume 7 is titled 'Abandonment'.

In their own words:

"The stories in this issue explore the theme of
abandoned; places once full of life and meaning
left empty and forgotten. 

Through ‘Abandoned’ we showcase neglected motels,
deserted cities and derelict monuments. With visual
stories from Pripyat, Svalbard, and the Furka Pass, our
pages evoke both a depth and range of emotion;
nostalgia, wonder and despair. Through written stories
and essays, we consider the difference between what it
means to abandon, and what it means to forget. We
journey to Bodie along a deserted dirt track, wander
through the silent streets of an empty city and visit
a derelict amusement park. After a year that left us
largely lacking in inspiration, we realised it can be
found in the most unexpected of places."
