Creatives, artists and makers with a lifestyle that is entwined with nature. Upstate Diary is a US based publication that looks at country living with a fresh, artistic lens. Upstate diary challenges the idea that the central hubs of creativity are within tower blocks and grey streets, instead providing the idea of finding inspiration within nature.
This issue includes words from Dan Colen, the artist, and former bad boy, who has turned his naughty behaviour into good stuff: he is growing fresh veggies for food banks — and he gives it all away. Find Jeila Guermian’s inspiration and source material which is never farther away than the nearest thrift store, and the Art of Animal Communication - Cindy Brody helps animals to express their feelings by unravelling behavioural issues. Lots to read in this great biannual mag.
