Summer always sparks our wanderlust.
No doubt some of you will be answering that call with a summer excursion to hike the glaciers of Patagonia, sprawl on Greece’s pink Mediterranean beaches, or take a meticulously planned road trip from coast to coast. But if, like us, you’ll be lucky (and grateful!) to sneak in a few quiet moments at the community pool or a glass of rosé on the back deck, this issue’s designed for you.
Because even in the absence of far-away lands and exotic adventure, your soul needs to travel, to get a little lost, to challenge routine and hone the imagination. Have you ever noticed your most original ideas are more likely to break the surface when the noise of life isn’t quite as loud?
We’ve got you covered. We asked some of our favorite travel photographers their best advice on how to plan and photograph a trip designed for cracking the hum-drum. And the fact is that you don’t have to be a world traveler to put their tips to use. This issue will help you to create transformative moments for yourself this season — be that an escape to your favorite beach, exploration on the streets of Havana or photographing fireflies in your own backyard.
And we can’t adequately cover the importance of mindful recharges without sharing that Click Away 2018 has been set for the idyllic coast of Amelia Island, Florida. Click Away is a rare combination of immersive education and some of the most moving, most joyful, most connected days of your creative life. It’s an event that guarantees artists a few precious days of soul travel, and we can’t wait to see you there.
