about us

Stories, Images and Inspiration

Urban Wilderness is a collaborative journal project consisted of writers, filmmakers and photographers. We bring to our readers an insight into the urbanities and wilderness of the world through inspiring images and storytelling.

Explore with us the peculiarities of nature, culture, history, gastronomy of wondrous destinations; where the urban meets the wild; where they either intriguingly clash or creatively complete each other.

UW is a volunteer-run website. We work towards broadening its sources of contribution and funding with the aim of strengthening the unconventional, sterling and independent storytelling.

Our mission is not to simply publish conventional pleasing content; but to truly engage our wide-ranging audience with significant things occuring in all corners of the world.
