Excerpt from Newton & Coe chat with Jordan Banks

This year Jordan, with partner Kav Dadfar, have launched an ambitious, crowd-funded travel magazine – JRNY -against a background of a global pandemic and largely closed down travel industry. The first issue has just been published so we took the opportunity to talk with Jordan about his life in photography, how JRNY came from a idea to reality and his thoughts on the future.

JRNY isn’t just any magazine and it’s big enough to be called a book. Unusually Jordan and Kav have set the publication up so that the revenue is shared between all the contributing photographers and writers. JRNY travel magazine
