After a pandemic-shaped hiatus, Fields & Stations is back with issue 5!
Fields & Stations is a travel mag filled with 'good writing for curious travellers...devoted to the magic of both the far-flung and the familiar, balancing the everyday and the remarkable. Fields & Stations focusses on little cultural objects (a shop; a cocktail; a sandwich) to tell big stories.'
Opening with our very own Fields & Stations travel manifesto and an incisive essay on decolonising travel writing by Meera Dattani, this issue showcases some luxuriously lengthy pieces: Zora O'Neill on panoramas and their cultural mythologies; Alicia Kennedy on San Juan's iconic El Batey; Annemarie Dooling on chicken parmigiana in North America; Jamie Lafferty on love, light, and loss in Antarctica; and Liana Aghajanian on meat and home among Mongolian shamans.
We have some shorter twinkling lights, too: Nick Myers' gorgeous souvenirs from Asmara; Yolanda Evans' list of cocktails worth the journey; Lee Cobaj's Macau address book; Gabriel Leigh's dream flight inventory; and Karin van Mierlo's photo essay of Lisbon emerging from its first lockdown last year.
