Desired Landscapes — is an independent pocket-sized magazine reading into a diverse mix of cities. Print co-exists with walking tours and an online newsletter, collectively exploring the sense of place though visual culture. Each dispatch is a collection of person-to-place bonds, critical texts, archival material, maps and poetic snapshots, seen through the eyes of people shaping today's cities.

What are we looking for — Fascinating stories that have to do with the experience of the urban landscape and all the possible means of its representation – in text and imagery. We look back at history, as we project to the future. We care about raw personal narratives, obsessive research, distinct voices, and shift perspectives. — Stories can be unconventional in nature, but they should always try to spark dialogue.

There is no theme — Each issue is the result of long conversations. The contrast and patterns between the authors' distinct angles and the chosen cities is the magazine's main objective, and what forms it. Hence, the selection of stories happens on a rolling basis, aiming for this emerging broader narrative.


All proposals will receive a response, positive or negative.
We offer an honorarium to the selected contributors.
