Art and environmentalism in Where the Leaves Fall
David Reeve and Luciane Pisani are the editors and art director of Where the Leaves Fall, a magazine that focuses on our contemporary relationship with nature. It’s the sort of subject that can easily feel overwhelming, but in this episode of the Stack podcast they explain that they’re on a mission to tell stories about sustainability and the natural world that feel human, and which ultimately inspire readers to take positive action. They’re also keen that their magazine should help give a platform to voices that aren’t normally heard, and so they search far and wide, looking particularly to the global south for local stories about these global environmental issues.
We’ve taken our time getting back into the podcast after the Christmas break so it’s more than a month now since we released our last episode, but we’ve got some great magazines lined up for the coming weeks, covering all sorts of different subjects and all featuring independent magazine makers figuring out the many challenges of turning their ideas into ink on paper. If you’re not already following us I hope you will do so we can deliver those episodes to you as soon as they’re ready – you can find us on Soundcloud or iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts, and in the meantime I hope you’ll enjoy this conversation with David and Luciani.
