Panorama: From the Greek words pan, meaning all, and horama, meaning view.
Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel is a British literary journal magazine hybrid, with a modern focus on travel literature, art, and photography.
We are panoramic.
A panorama is not only what you see in your immediate surroundings. It is also the half-glimpsed, but unprocessed, scenes at the periphery of your vision, an unbroken view. Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel exists to draw attention to every part of the scene, so that we are able to see and hear the images and voices excluded from the conventional, narrow travel narrative. It is an opportunity for us to broaden our horizons, and thus to better understand, and appreciate, the world in which we live.
We are modern storytellers.
Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel is a visionary effort to bring travel writing into a new age. We publish fresh perspectives in evocative prose. We are modern. We are rebels. We are storytellers who aim to inform and change the landscape of travel writing and photography by celebrating, questioning, and broadening what came before us.
We are internationalists.
We believe that stories and images which show our world should be created by writers and photographers throughout that world. Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel aims to bring a wide worldview to our readers, by gathering a collective of writers, photographers and creatives with varying backgrounds, ethnicities, voices, and identities for each issue, from the well-known to the unheard. A single narrative is but a brush stroke on a page: a painting requires many brushstrokes to show the Technicolor wonder of a place. No one voice is definitive: our rich understanding comes from the synthesis of many.
We are changing the face of travel.
Panorama:The Journal of Intelligent Travel will appear online in four quarterly issues a year, with an online weekly Sunday magazine, all accessed easily by readers anywhere in the world. The inaugural issue will be published in September 2016. In addition, we will be publishing print anthologies featuring content curated from works that have appeared online in Panorama, as well as original contributions.
