Desired Landscapes Issue No1
Desired landscapes exist in our fantasies. They are postcards depicting distant vistas – unvisited or perhaps unforgettable. Projections of possible homes, of streets yet to be discovered and of urban clichés to be demystified. This magazine is all about that. It explores the sense of a place. It is a collection of person-to-place bonds, urban observations and poetic snapshots.
