In The Mountains
In The Mountains is an interactive print that takes users through an emotional journey in the footsteps of adventurers. It's about love, loss, and transformation.
Filled with postcards, hidden text, and questions waiting to be answered, the book encourages writing and remaining in touch with the humane parts of us. It encourages experiencing the unknown, focuses on the greatness of the mountains and how strange individuals can be part of a significant change.
Telling the stories of different women in the mountains, how the mountains transformed them, what they lost and what made them feel. There’s an uprising of encouraging women to travel on their own, and this project could be part of this uprising. To be somewhat a motivation, and inspiration, for young women to go out there and find life for themselves in the middle of nature. The first edition's content is by me and a part of Ohoud Saad's story.
In The Mountains highlights the importance of documentation and photojournalism and how they intersect with graphic design. It takes a new approach to photo books that adds elements of interaction to allow the user to interact in a physical medium rather than a screen.
