is an independent print magazine dedicated to long-form journalism and original photography from across Europe.
From humble beginnings in 2017, Point.51 has become a recognised home for in-depth journalism and original photography that explores a complex and ever-changing Europe. From young Spaniards struggling to forge careers amid economic stagnation, to Scottish nationalists dreaming of independence, and Cuban asylum seekers living in Serbia, Point.51 challenges and inspires readers – while leaving them to make up their own minds on the issues that matter.
Their in-depth reporting and photography journeys far and wide, from Portugal’s Atlantic coast, to the Swedish archipelago, and the boundary between Europe and Asia. Drawing upon local knowledge – the history, the culture, the language – their writers and photographers cover stories in towns, cities, and the often-forgotten places in between. Point.51 explores the people and places shaping the landscape of contemporary Europe – in and out of the news.
Published twice a year, Point.51 is entirely ad-free. Each issue brings together 136 pages of carefully-crafted and beautifully laid out journalism and photography for readers of all ages and backgrounds – now and in the future.
In this issue, Point.51’s writers and photographers report from the smallest nations – and would be nations – of Europe, to the largest. From the rocky shores of Gibraltar, to the “micro-nation” of Mapsulon, to the haunting beauty of the Basque Country, and the rolling, rose-covered fields of central Bulgaria.
