In Lindsay 1 we meet Australian fashion icon Jenny Kee in the Blue Mountains, translator from Italian Ann Goldstein in New York City, and French-Cuban music duo Ibeyi in London. We learn about Ramadan, the influence of Aboriginal ball game Marngrook on Australian rules football, Nairobi’s tech scene, the Kiribati dance, the art of pickling, and the importance of home. And we see what it’s like to dress up in Myanmar, live in Cuernavaca, make ceramics from different soil, and walk the streets of Florence.

Lindsay 1: in this first issue we meet Australian fashion icon Jenny Kee in the Blue Mountains, translator from Italian Ann Goldstein in New York City, and French-Cuban music duo Ibeyi in London.
Yassmin Abdel-Magied has written about Ramadan, four writers from four different cities tell us what they had for breakfast and Yumna Al-Arashi has reflected on her personal experiences as a Yemeni-American Muslim in the Trump era. We’ve investigated the influence of Aboriginal ball game Marngrook on Australian rules football, the tech scene in Nairobi and the storytelling of the Kiribati dance. We’ve also created a succinct twopart guide to understanding the U.S. political system.
Marsha Golemac and Beth Wilkinson have documented ceramics from different parts of the world in a series of still life images, Olga de la Iglesia has photographed the fashions of Myanmar and Pia Riverola has aptured the home of Elia and Rodolfo Stavenhagen (a museum curator and human rights anthropologist) just outside of Mexico City. Oslo Davis has drawn a comic typifying Melbourne and Andy Murray brings Florence’s footpaths to life in watercolour.
Our food feature explores the art and history of pickling across the world with five recipes, astrologist Mina Zheng gives us some insight into the year ahead with her Chinese zodiacs, and we finish the magazine off with reviews of four films capturing New Zealand, four books capturing Brazil, and four albums capturing Mali.

Lindsay launched online in March 2017 and its first print issue was published in 2018. Founded and edited by Beth Wilkinson, Lindsay is an independent magazine created in collaboration with brilliant writers, photographers and artists from around the globe. Lindsay was founded in Melbourne, Australia, on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay our respect to their ancestors and elders—past, present and future—and value the role of storytelling in their culture, which is amongst the oldest living cultures in the world.
Named after Beth’s grandfather (Lindsay James Stanger), a man who documented the world with his many analog cameras—a collection Beth would later inherit—this publication echoes his approach to life: with an open mind, a thirst for learning and a love for sharing stories.
