At the forefront of South Africa’s emerging psychedelic rock movement marches The Very Wicked, a band that wants rock and roll to recapture its sense of story — and even, dare we say it, subtlety.

From Australian Idol contestant to ARIA Song of the Year award-winner — twice — and having released four EPs already and soon a full-length album, it’s been a busy six years for singer-songwriter Matt Corby. The next six are likely to be busier.

Romanian photographer Hajdu Tamás achieves a delightful balance of colour and composition in his quiet — yet often quirkily-funny — urban scenes  http://www.scope-mag.com/2013/10/glimpse-hajdu-tamas/

Animals, argues philosopher Mark Rowlands in a recent book, are capable of feeling sympathy for others, and as a result are capable of good acts. But is this enough for us to call them moral?

Desertification is a serious and rapidly-growing problem across wide swathes of the world, and cattle grazing plays a role in it. But if the environmental and economic success that Johann Zietsman has been having with his herds is anything to go by, the answer may not be fewer cattle but more.

Industrial-scale agriculture has placed small farmers and environments at risk not just in the United States but across the developing world, warns Eric Holt-Giménez of the “think-and-do-tank” Food First. Fixing this isn’t a matter of top-down reform — but of generating sustained pressure from below.

Wonderful to see NYT's T Magazine covering photographer Karen Knorr, whose latest series, "India Song", is gorgeous, beguiling, and unsettling. Karen's work appeared SCOPE's Summer 2011 issue.

It seems axiomatic that photography is a sighted person’s art form. But Gina Badenoch, who facilitates photography workshops with blind people and marginalized communities, argues that it’s also a language that can connect us to each other, and help us to see.

That the opening of a single grocery store in a single city should be national news might seem hard to explain. Then again, the city is Detroit and the store is Whole Foods, and the full story involves post-industrial decline, growing food insecurity, and a population that refuses to become invisible, or to give up.

Today’s children spend less time in nature than any generation before them. Jon Alexander, brand strategist at the UK’s National Trust, and filmmaker David Bond tell SCOPE about the implications for children’s well-being, and about their ambitious (and irreverent) Project Wild Thing, a documentary that looks at what it would take to get boys and girls back outside.

Driven by pleasure-seeking and curiosity, tourism has evolved from a pastime of the leisured rich to a trillion-dollar mass industry. But it's about much more than fun and money, historian Richard White tells SCOPE: tourism offers an invaluable view into a society's relationship with its past, and with its present identity.
