The Journal of Wild Culture is a new online magazine that focuses on the broad and fertile intersection between culture and the environment. The Journal is published by the Society for the Preservation of Wild Culture, an arts and ecology organization founded by Whitney Smith in 1986 by multi-disciplinary artist Whitney Smith.
Part 1: The first in a three-part series on a project that asks the questions: What is Antarctica to us, and what we can be to it? A new book about the project weaves historic and contemporary photographs, recipes and daily reports in a polar journal style. At the heart of it is the story of the food.
Part 2 in our 3-part series on traveling to a faraway continent where the simplest acts — social and environmental — get edgy fast.
Part 3 or our 3-part series on a new book, The Antarctic Book of Cooking & Cleaning. An engaging chef and artist speaks intimately about food and cooking in a very desolate place.
Many thanks Whitney Smith and Wild Culture team.
