Desired Landscapes brings together creatives, writers, tour guides, the people who write the stories of today’s cities, to share their most unique and personal findings. Here’s what we found: a postcard moment cannot be fully replicated, and iconic imageries are just the starting point of a journey. After all, destinations are plain images waiting to be transformed through one’s experiences.

Issue 2 takes you to GRANDE MOTTE – PISA – KUWAIT – BERLIN – ZURICH – ATHENS – SOUR LAKE – CONCRETE ISLAND – ALEXANDRIA – HONG KONG – BARCELONA – FLORENCE
