Athleta Magazine, Issue 8

225 SEK
Sold out.

Athleta is a photographic magazine. It tells stories of timeless sports, careless of the day’s sporting events.

Through images, it narrates about of people and places. Dilapidated gyms, drenched in fatigue, dirt roads or Nordic landscapes. Everywhere sports are spontaneous. Exotic perhaps, unknown to many, but real and sweaty, faithful to the values of competition in all it’s cultural forms.

In this issue:

Athleta magazine n.8 is an immersion in the relationship between man and nature, man and community and man and himself.

The introductory story is “I Want To Live in Real Madrid”, a journey by Alessandro Simonetti that takes us to the hot dunes of Fuerteventura, which have become a football center for African migrants. Then Giuliano Pugolotti in his ‘Inner Dunes’, tells us about a surreal ultra desert.

The desert also returns in “Una Inmensa Stepa Verde”, a sublime explanation of Achille Mauri’s photography in the outdoor context.

‘Ice & Fire’ by Eric Scaggiante / Niccolò Varanini and ‘No Temas, Somos Los Chilangos’ by Jeoffrey Guillemard are instead two reportages on the bicycle that lead us into the fascinating sporting pain of cyclocross and on the other investigate the social value of the Chilangos Lowbike Club México, community that uses the connection between art and cycling to eradicate the scourge of organized crime.

From community to community, from Mexico City to Venice Beach, where female empowerment (and not only) is amplified on the tables from skate of ‘There Is No “I” In Grl’, portrayed by Giulia Fassina. We meet then Charlie Dark and Sanchia Legister, a pair of creative Londoners who in the race and in yoga they found the tools to change their own and others’ lives, and with Virgil Dey, internationally renowned b-boy and performer with an anthropological and cultural vision of breakdance. Julien Da Costa’s editorial based on American football and Parisian fashion ‘Easy To Pick Up, Hard To Put Down’ is the last piece of this new chapter of Athleta Magazine: the only place where sport is art and culture .
