The Hunger was launched in 2011 as a biannual magazine by English photographer Rankin.

I discovered it a year ago and I knew instinctively that it would become my new favourite magazine. Not least because its tag line is, 'for the culturally and visually hungry.' A statement, I'd like to think, we all are. The current issue is packed with 432 pages of explosive content. The magazine is divided into five categories: interview, art, fashion, beauty and documentary. My favourite, and what keeps me coming back to the magazine, is the interview section. It's full of Rankin's own photography and highlights some of pop cultures most up-and-coming faces as well as the more well established. The most recent issue features everyone from Iggy Azalea to Ant and Dec. It's unexpected and edgy. There are hardly any advertisements and it doesn't at all feel as though it's trying to sell you anything.

If you're looking for something to keep you company at the park or on a long flight get yourself a copy of The Hunger pronto. Unlike most fashion magazines, this baby will hold your attention for hours. It's the sort of piece you'll want to come back to time and time again. And, if you're like me you'll be incapable of ever throwing it away.
