Lost # 7
Lost is a Chinese independent travel magazine. Hotels, resorts, beach life are all that this magazine is not about.
In fact, inside we find stories of people who seek danger, inconvenience and absolutely uncomfortable things on their journey. From here, for them, the essence of the real journey takes place, what becomes an immersive state of mind, in which man can enter totally with body and mind in places and above all in the human intertwining of a place in the world far from what commonly calls home.
The magazine is entirely composed of travel diaries and introspective reflections accompanied by truly exceptional landscape photographs and travel fragments, which printed on textured paper give a great idea of the sweat and fatigue that often accompany travel even if we do not like to show them.
To write and take the photographs are photographers, travelers and writers able to make the contents as profound as professional.
The magazine has its heart between China and Singapore and as the Asian publishing products show us more and more, the print work is well-kept and very fascinating. The same textured paper accompanies us throughout the magazine, but the visible edge and the full-page or even double-page photographs make this object robust and able to convey the idea of the weight and charm of the stories it hosts.
In this issue we find:
Diane Chiang who wants to overcome your fear of water by taking a snorkeling trip to Gili Air,
Celine Meunier who discovers what it really means to live as a nomad in Kyrgyzstan in "The Nomadic Way of Life",
Daniel Koh sharing his experiences helping a husky farm in Finland in "The Arctic Cold",
Evan Balkan describing his travel experience on the Mississippi Blues Trail in "A Beautiful and Haunted Tune",
Emily Shao reflecting on the definition of happiness during her visit to the mysterious and special city of Pyongyang.
