[vc_row][vc_column width='1/5'][/vc_column][vc_column width='3/5'] Let’s be clear: summer is overrated. The sun glares down from the sky, insects swarm in the air, the beaches heave with crowds; everywhere you go there is the palpable feeling that you should be out “having fun” and “making memories”--which is honestly a tall order to fill when stuck on a crammed train or plane with 100 kilos of luggage in tow. And to top it all off, it is too hot to enjoy our favorite foods! No soups or hearty stews or thick steaks or quiches or deep red wines; far from that, we find ourselves cornered and subjected to the humble pleasure of…salad. So now, as September makes its grand appearance after months of estival inferno, it is time to fire up our stoves and get cracking on the good stuff. Which brings us to Fare–this month’s Surprise Subscription choice. More

We've loved FatBoy Zine since the first issue! It's packed with delicious and unusual recipes, beautifully wrapped in incredible graphic design and served with gorgeous photos! An absolute gem!⁠ ⁠ FatBoy Zine describes itself as a greedy attempt to document Asian food and Identity. Founder Chris O’Leary takes himself and his various-countries-calling-home upbringing as the starting point. Through recipes, he shows how food naturally transcends all distances and borders. And how it can tell the story of a multinational identity through its mix. ⁠ ⁠ Issue 4 focuses on the chefs and creatives who have left Asia, but have decided to recreate it in their own way in Europe and the US. The issue includes three interviews from established chefs, Lucas Sin (Shy Boyz Club & Junzi Kitchen), Erchen Chang and Shing Tat Chung (BAO) and Rahel Stephanie (Eat With Spoons / Linda From Accounting). Each interviewee gives their opinion on process, representation and what drives their food and conversation outside of the kitchen. The issue of course has the staple 5 recipes, from Chilli Oil to a Burnt Cocon.⁠ Buy...

"My trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway was unique in that pretty much everything I experienced was different from what I had imagined," says Spanish photographer Coco Capitán. "I thought I would be traveling in a train filled with chatty and friendly passengers and I had the idea that my adventure would play out along these lines. I could already see in my mind the pictures of passengers caught by my camera inside the old train compartments. Nothing could have been further from the reality I encountered." ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Born in Seville in 1992 and now based in London, having moved there to study at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, Coco Capitán’s work spans a range of practices and media. Involved in the world of luxury from the start of her career, she rapidly gained international recognition as a fashion photographer. However, her artistic focus and accomplishments reach far beyond that sphere, combining photography, painting and performance with written slogans and aphorisms.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ The Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye collection evokes cities, regions or countries through the eyes of fashion photographers, from emerging talents to industry legends. Each title in the series features an extensive selection of large-format photographs, together with biographical information and an interview with the photographer or a critical essay. After Louis Vuitton City Guides and Travel Books, this third collection presents travel photography with a fashion perspective, as the chosen photographers all infuse their images of great cities, faraway places or dream destinations with their unique vision.⁠⁠ Buy...

Heading to Venice for the Biennale Arte? Let this book invite you to discover the other Venice. The one where your footsteps echo through the empty alleys, rhythmically refracted by glistening light.⁠ ⁠ Venice Unclocked is a beautiful, joint publication by writer Rachel Spence and photographer Giacomo Cosua. It is a wonderful ensemble of small written impressions and photographs from the perspective of a native Venetian. Together, text and images present an unexpected impression of the city, a calming personal vision away from the hustle and bustle of visitors. Buy...

Rudy Ossona is a self-taught photographer from Paris. He works a lot in fashion photography. But this book is more private. It's about his travels, his friends. It's about good restaurants, hanging out on the beach, warm afternoon light shining into the hotel room. However, the different places are not mentioned. Here and there, a detail in the picture reveals where we are in this moment together with Rudy. However, it is not really important. It's more about a mood that pervades this book. Warm, summery, relaxed, full of curiosity and captured with a great eye for detail and colour. But above all, this book shows Rudy's ability to capture not an image but an atmosphere with his camera. ⁠ Buy...

In Ukrainian trains, it is a tradition that after boarding, passengers put on more comfortable clothes, change their shoes into slippers or lie barefoot, have dinner and a drink - and all this in cramped compartments. ⁠From that moment on everything seems possible. The notions of privacy and personal boundaries are dim in the train light...

Between rough rocks, dry vegetation and blindingly glistening water, a new kind of family was born - a group of friends who share adventure, community and light-heartedness. Kate Bellm has enchantingly captured the sun-drenched lives around the reef of her and her friends. The images make you dream of free diving, starry nights, warm sun-kissed skin and a playful life.⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠ "La Isla" is the island of Mallorca, their home of choice, but also the island in spirit, far from the social norms of normal society, that this group of friends have created for themselves. So take a deep breath and jump with them into a remote world made of psychedelic skies, otherworldly desert plants, trippy escapes and intimate encounters under the sea.⁠⁠⁠   Buy...

The Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) coined the term "sentimental geography" to describe a unique artistic approach in which the ordinary is worthy of closer scrutiny. Puglia, an - at the time - off-the-beaten-track region at the very tip of the heel of Italy, with its whitewashed houses and streets, attracted the attention of this extraordinary photographer. Neglected by the rest of Italy, which looked only to the rich and profitable north of the country, he turned his camera to the everyday life of this sun-drenched land and its inhabitants. The minimalist yet sensitive photographs, with their elegant colour palette, evoke a sense of place known for its ancient architecture, crystal clear waters and arid olive groves.⁠⁠   Buy...

[vc_row][vc_column width='1/5'][/vc_column][vc_column width='3/5'] It’s a new year, and with it comes a new installment of our Surprise Subscription. This month, we bring you the very first issue of the new publication from the makers of Kajet Journal: introducing ‘The Future Of…’


[vc_row][vc_column width='1/5'][/vc_column][vc_column width='3/5'] We all have an idea, when we travel there, of what a particular city is really like, or at least what it should be like: we picture Venice without all the tourists, Paris without the graffiti, London without the painfully-expensive ticket prices on the Tube. But those things are part of the truth of the place, aren’t they? And to deny them is to deny the reality of our lived experience of the world. Which is where Desired Landscapes comes in.
