Featured articles

The Ocean by Bike. 4500 kilometers along the wild southern Australian coast. By bike. Che Chorley, an Australian photographer, hits the road in search of those emotions that you can only experience where land and sea meet.

Tupira, Papua New Guinea. A community proud of its own traditions, two outstanding shapers and some wooden surfboards. Just enough for a small village on the Pacific Ocean to stay apart from the world of plastic.

Nathanael Herreshoff. Ask anyone with even a sketchy grip on the history of American yachting who America’s preeminent designer was and the answer will invariably come back: Nathanael Herreshoff.

Surfing the New Moon. Where Asia ends and Oceania hasn’t yet begun, on board the Bulan Baru, a 21-meter-long wooden phinisi schooner, we are chasing the perfect wave. The uncontaminated one that lies outside the predictable charted courses. The one that’s really worth going after.

Deep Gaze. It doesn’t matter if they see in black and white, while we see in color. Whether they swim in their natural environment, while we almost do. Next to them, we are tiny. When you come eye-to-eye with  a whale, all differences disappear and only you and she are there.

Suomenlinna. A fortress in a sea of islands. Off the coast of Helsinki, the island’s dry dock is flooded and opened to take care of historic Baltic boats. A ritual that has happened every year for 300 years.

The Sea Inside: Max Sirena. Exchange a few words with Max and it seems like you have known him forever. Then again, if you try to put him into a category, you always feel like you have missed something.

The Winds of the Soul. There are places where winds shape geography and shake souls.

Lewis’s Sense of the Ocean. For Lewis Pugh, enduring the cold is not a finish line but a beginning. Facing the coldest waters on the planet is his way of fighting for the ocean.

Black Water. Killen Falls, Australia: the jungle, a river, a waterfall. To reemerge is like being reborn. As-yet unreleased images by photographer Morgan Maassen, world known for his stunning surf imagery.

 

That’s just a preview.

Water and Paper


Sirene is water, Sirene is paper

Water and Paper


Sirene is water, Sirene is paper

 

Sirene is a new magazine tailored for those people who feel close to the sea even when they are far away from it. 

Large recycled paper pages, rough and porous as only salt water stains can be, large white spaces, pure as a sea horizon, and page-turner stories that will put you on the same wave-length with a surging community looking at the oceans as the intersection of the planet’s destinies. 

Our paper is made from algae, to make use of excess algal blooms from lagoons at risk. For every half kilo of fresh algae, a kilo of wood is saved. The entire productive process has been scrupulously thought out to attain minimal environmental impact.

Passion


Sirene Is Passion

Passion


Sirene Is Passion

 

Surfing, freediving, stretches of ocean in the words of a solo sailor, islands, beaches to discover, customs and traditions of beach culture, stories of secret ferries, lost classic boats, whale sharks routes, reportings related to pollution and protection of marine life, create a narration in which sea lovers can relate and where they can find the characteristics of a common identity. Unlike other media dealing with sea sports and activities, Sirenes's approach is never technical but always emotional.

Sirene has been awarded a Graphite Pencil at the 2016 D&AD Awards in London, got a nomination at the 2016 ADCE* Awards in Barcelona and was among the Medal Finalists of SPD #52 in NY.

Sirene Is Where You Are

 

Two different versions – one in Italian and one in English – and two cradles, the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, where the attraction for water has grown in time into a culture.

Starting from Italy and California, through its webpage sirenejournal.com and carefully selected points of sale, SIRENE wants to spread and develop along the Mediterranean coast and the dry lands in the Pacific area until it reaches its readers wherever they are in the world.
