Volume Seven: Abandoned

The stories in this issue explore the theme of abandoned; places once full of life and meaning left empty and forgotten.

Through ‘Abandoned’ the writers and photographers showcase neglected motels, deserted cities and derelict monuments.

With visual stories from Pripyat, Svalbard, and the Furka Pass, these pages evoke both a depth and range of emotion; nostalgia, wonder and despair. Through written stories and essays, they consider the difference between what it means to abandon, and what it means to forget. Take a 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, the editors of Rucksack realised it can be found in the most unexpected of places.
