Victory Journal, Issue 18 – Trials

225 SEK
Sold out.

Victory Journal is the new refuge of the true sportsman. Unmoved by statistical analysis and provincial opinions, Victory is concerned with the eternal glories and ignominies of players and pursuits the world over. From sumo wrestling to nautical jousting, 80s icons to Olympic hopefuls, Victory unearths the sublime joys of the sporting life through reportage and oral history, photography and illustration. Calling on an elite roster of like-minded contributors, Victory provides a forum for work that is unapologetically enthusiastic and uncompromisingly personal. It speaks to an audience that like its architects can distinguish the enduring from the fleeting and is ruled, above all, by an irrepressible curiosity.

In this issue:

Victory Journal’s extra-sized 10th anniversary issue explores the multifaceted concept of “Trials.” The issue bounces around the world, jumping from the story of a scientist-turned-pinball-champion in the Bay, to a patchwork oral history of London-based athletes with deferred (and quite possibly canceled) Olympic dreams, to a gory celebration of rattlesnake wrangling in the small town of Sweetwater, Texas. Victory Journal #18 also looks at the high-stakes world of bike racing in Japan, small town rugby traditions in the UK, the rise of the next great soccer superstar Deyna Castellanos, the dangerous lives of the coast guard rescue team at the mouth of the Pacific Ocean, the pastel-hued, soft focus gymnastics paintings of Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi, and much more.
