FIELDS & STATIONS
Welcome to the first issue of Fields & Stations.
We are excited to share lists of characteristics, not venues of Astoria (by Zora ONeill), Goa (by Sheena Dabholkar), and Edinburgh (by Caroline Eden); and four reviews: of a distinctive Thai-Aussie hybrid larbh sandwich in Sydney (by Sheila Ngọc Phạm), of a Philadelphia-inflected cocktail (by Alisha Miranda); of Bangkoks otherworldly Hotel Atlanta (by Zora ONeill); and of one of Luandas cornershops, or mamadous, by Cláudio Silva.
Longer articles follow: Lee Cobajs wonderfully personal address book dedicated to her home neighbourhood, Hong Kongs Causeway Bay; Robert Reids ode to the unloved yet lovable Oklahoma Panhandle; my road trip through western Ukraine and eastern Slovakia, deeply indebted to the photographic vision of Troy Litten; and Warren Singh-Bartletts love letter to Sidon, Lebanon.
The issue closes with Pam Mandels exploration of memory and time in Egypt in the early 1980s, a photo essay of Cuba, circa 2000, and a zippy list of trips and places on our radar.
The magazine was designed by A. Marta Ferreira, a Lisbon-based graphic designer.
