Rucksack Magazine is a bi-annual publication that celebrates both written & visual storytelling driven by a passion for adventure and photography. Rucksack has no limits, no boundaries - a magazine for anyone with a thirst for adventure.
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.
