Sidetracked #04


Publicação focada na viagem aventura, a Sidetracked volta a trazer-nos uma série de reportagens de cortar a respiração. No seu #04 número, a revista britanica leva-nos a pedalar pelas montanhas de Wakhan, Afeganistão; a sobrevoar a costa do Iémen ou a descobrir culturas remotas através do trabalho do fotógrafo Jimmy Nelson. Estas e muitas outras aventuras na Sidetracked #04.

"Sidetracked Volume Four is a unique journal presenting a series of breathtaking adventures, expeditions and discoveries.

This issue takes us mountain biking in Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor, paragliding in Socotra off the coast of Yemen, snorkelling in the tranquil mangrove forests and climbing on Baffin Island. We also discover remote cultures via the ethereal work of Jimmy Nelson, take an in depth look at Antarctica through historic photography and personal accounts, and follow Tommy Caldwell’s journey to complete the ascent of the Dawn Wall."


“On every page lies the heart-stopping reality

of what awaits us when we toss away

the fetters of our real lives.”


We also take a look at Antarctica. That frozen continent has, for a more than a century, fuelled the imagination of explorers and adventurers the world over. It remains one of the most unforgiving environments on the planet. Few places evoke more awe and a quiet respect. With words and images spanning many decades – modern and historical reflections of those who have survived there – we explore this pure, sparse and profound landscape through historic photography and personal accounts.”

“ In this issue we wanted to feature those who look to learn more about the remote cultures and landscapes that exist on our amazing planet. From Jim Johnson’s time with the nomadic Berbers in Morocco, resilient and resourceful, but whose way of life is facing a challenging and uncertain future; to the stunning, ethereal photography of Jimmy Nelson who braved spewing volcanoes, swamps and stampeding reindeer to live among those vanishing cultures he desperately wanted to show to the world. And finally, to Ethan Daniels, snorkelling within the shaded, tranquil mangrove forests on the coast of the remote island of Raja Ampat in Indonesia, one of the most diverse regions for marine life on Earth.
