The desert lies bare - sparse and silent in the heavy stillness of the day, a wilderness that somehow manages to be both remote and yet strangely intimate. We seek to explore the gentle fragility of these ancient landscapes, uncovering the textures, colours, and light that plays out in shadows across the land.
The creators of Rucksack Magazine bring you Deserted: In Pursuit of Drylands. In this study of the desert landscape, the visual and written stories portray places so vast that time and space are rendered meaningless. Featuring photography from locations such as Utah, the Atacama, the Namib Desert, and the Australian Outback, we showcase endless, open swathes of golden land that stretch beneath the burning sky and soar far beyond any possible human perception.
