Renegade is a new, alternative travel magazine. It celebrates the best travel writing and is not designed to sell destinations, but to show the world as it is, the light and the dark together.
GBP 3.00 — Released 20 May 2014
This issue follows the same format as the first, with an essay on translation by Jennie Erdal and travel writing from Warren Singh-Bartlett and Clyde Macfarlane on Beirut and hitchhiking around New Zealand respectively.
Photographer Matías Costa shot this issue's photo story, on board Soviet ships stranded in the Canary Islands and this issue's Centrefold comes from Christopher Pillitz, who has produced an extraordinary body of work on Brazil.
Jennifer Makumbi, whom we heard talk at the African Writers' Evening at the Southbank Centre last year has written an entertaining short story about Kenyan and Ugandan coffee. Patrick McGuinness, whose book Other People's Countries is one of this year's most impressive reads, rounds things off with memories of his childhood in Belgium.
Illustrations from Sophia Martineck are scattered throughout and we're pleased to feature another graphic artist's short story; this time Salvatore Giommarresi in Mozambique.
