A magazine about a trip to Italy

Traveling to any place—however remote, undiscovered, or already described and illustrated in countless ways—means to learn and to embrace unexpected experiences. A trip to Italy produced the desire to visually interpret our impressions in the form of a magazine called “Found It.”
Every place offers something special. A unique set of colors. People that are the salt of the earth. Roads that lead to unexpected visual experiences and dropped jaws around every corner. The following pages of this magazine called “found it” visually and editorially express what we saw, heard, and felt when we arrived at a family-run organic farm south of Rome, visited rather old towns and cities in Tuscany, and connected with people we met from many countries.
The stories—that only include our own photography taken during this trip—describe Tuscan color palettes, horsepower comparisons in Siena, a reflection on the perceived flow of time and much more. New magazines describing different places we found are in the works. There is no end to creative storytelling.
