Lindsay Issue No. 1 will feature an interview with Elena Ferrante’s translator and The New Yorker’s former head of copy Ann Goldstein, Australian fashion icon Jenny Kee and French-Cuban music duo Ibeyi.
Yassmin Abdel-Magied has written about Ramadan, four writers from four different cities tell us what they had for breakfast and Yumna Al-Arashi has reflected on her personal experiences as a Yemeni-American Muslim
in the Trump era. We’ve investigated the influence of Aboriginal ball game Marngrook on Australian rules football, the tech scene in Nairobi and the storytelling of the Kiribati dance. We’ve also created a succinct two- part guide to understanding the U.S. political system.
Marsha Golemac and Beth Wilkinson have documented ceramics from different parts of the world in a series
of still life images, Olga de la Iglesia has photographed the fashions of Myanmar and Pia Riverola has captured the home of Elia and Rodolfo Stavenhagen (a museum curator and human rights anthropologist) just outside of Mexico City. Oslo Davis has drawn a comic typifying Melbourne and Andy Murray brings Florence’s footpaths to life in watercolour.
Our food feature explores the art and history of pickling across the world with five recipes, astrologist Mina Zheng gives us some insight into the year ahead with her Chinese zodiacs, and we finish the magazine off with reviews of four films capturing New Zealand, four books capturing Brazil, and four albums capturing Mali.
Lindsay is an international publication that celebrates importance of culture and place. It launched online
in March 2017 and its first print issue launched in March 2018. Founded by Beth Wilkinson in Melbourne, Australia, Lindsay is an independent magazine created in collaboration with brilliant writers, photographers and artists from around the globe. Named after Beth’s grandfather (Lindsay James Stanger), a man who documented the world with his many analog cameras, this publication echos his approach to life: with an open mind, a thirst for learning and a love for sharing stories.
Every place is more than just a location: each has its own history, identity and feeling. Inspired by the way
a Joan Didion essay can help you understand the complexities of city like L.A. or the moment in a Wong Kar-wai film when you feel the mystery of an old Hong Kong alley, Lindsay hopes to transport people. With essays mixed in with film reviews, interviews next to recipes, the thread that ties each piece together is place. Throughout the publication, film photography plays a leading role as an ode to the traditional and honest. Our photography captures moments rather than images, where storytelling takes precedence over perfect composition.
Launching in a time when national borders are tightening and gentrification threatens diversity, Lindsay reminds people of the importance of preserving culture and welcoming difference. This is a platform where readers can understand and appreciate the culturally and geographically foreign, without having to experience them first-hand. It brings together diverse voices with a curious, open-minded approach to producing thoughtful and borderless editorial content.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Lindsay launched online last year, and saw its first print issue flying all over the world earlier in 2018. It’s a travel magazine unlike any other; offering space to essays, interviews, and reviews, as well as championing beautiful film photography throughout. Founded on honouring the culture of the Kulin nation’s Wurundjeri people and their ties to storytelling, and named after founder Beth Wilkinson’s grandfather, Lindsay manages to bring the past, present and future together into one place. In issue one, I learnt about how Aussie Rules football could be based on the Aboriginal game Marngrook, visited Florence, saw the Kiribati dance, and got dressed in Myanmar. Pia Riverola’s photo essay of Cuernavaca makes me want to immediately move to Mexico. Each piece links back to the culture it explores in such a meaningful way that the magazine is a genuinely vital travel read. I can’t wait to see what issue two brings.
