What is Flourish?
Flourish - “(of a living organism) grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly congenial environment.”
As humans we are constantly seeking new, intriguing, and stimulating locations to explore, travel, and experience. Flourish aims to capture those moments we treasure; the bright colours, the tastes we remember, and most importantly the time spent thriving within that place.
We want to capture not only the sensual elements of a location, but also its underlying struggles, and those who have met and overcome the challenges of sustainability. Those who live from the land, create from the land, and are protecting and flourishing with the nature that surrounds them.
In recent years, photographic magazines have been blurring the lines between books and throwaway publications. Flourish is a magazine with stability, acting as a visual map for your mind, a great piece of reading material for your rucksack, and some inspiration to enjoy with your morning coffee.
Flourish will remind you that life is an experience, to capture those moments from other lives you cross paths with, to think more about what surrounds us in the landscapes you gaze at, and to speculate more on your next adventure.
Volume 2 - The British Isles
Volume 2 brings the notion of travel back to our roots, exploring the land we call home. It is here that we showcase a snippet of the British Isles, travelling from the Isle of Skye down to the Dorset coast, stopping along the way to explore mainland Britain and its surrounding islands.
The publication shares an eclectic variety of locations, food stories, lifestyle tips, travel guidance, personal tales, adventures in nature, and outdoor exploration. All photography, art work and illustration, and writing is produced in-house by the Flourish team or by collaborating food writers, photographers, and illustrators. We aim to increase our partnerships with collaborators in future volumes as we expand the Flourish creative community.

Why I need the public
This is where you come in. In order to complete and finalise the magazine, I need the support of my followers and friends to fund printing costs. As an individual, I have self-funded the adventures that feature in these pages, and the time taken to create the magazine itself. I am now looking for the support of my friends, family, fellow adventurers, and photo-loving creatives to get the publication to the print house. This campaign will act as a pre-ordering service, and all backers will receive a handcrafted magazine, as well as a range of other incentive offerings.
I will be using every penny raised here on printing costs, and any profit gained from the sale of Flourish Magazine will be used to fund my next adventures to curate Volume 3.
Risks and challenges
We already have all the content for Flourish Volume 2, so the only challenge left for us is to raise funding for printing. If we do not reach our target, we will be unable to go ahead with the print.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
