The Topograph is an online journal for writing and photography about travel and place.

Our only mission statement is to interest and entertain, by exploring ideas through place and vice versa. We like writing for the same lofty reasons we travel: in order to provide for a more vivid existence and a more compelling window on the world.

There’s no fast rule to what we publish, and we make only one distinction, between long form and the more instantly digestible.
