Rucksack Magazine – Issue 03: The Island Issue
Rucksack Magazine is an online journal and printed bi-annual publication. We celebrate visual storytelling and are driven by our passion for adventure and photography.
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.
