What is a life? - Issue 02

It is quite an exciting time for Hear & There. With each article, we continue to grow and develop the voice of this magazine in collaboration with our contributors, and our readers.

In celebration of the final month of summer, this issue focuses on the places people travel to while following their passions. From an LA photographer living in Rome, travel videographer for GoPro and Redbull, and a surf inspired SoCal painter, the stories we share in these next few pages remind us that life is an adventure, and we are always arriving.

The theme of youth is a central concept to Hear & There, and with youth comes the exciting challenge of creating a life that you love. Therefore, we have decided to introduce a new practice: for each of the inspiring people we feature, we ask them to answer the simple yet philosophically complex question: “what is a life?”

We are committed to sharing as many different perspectives to this question as possible, cannot wait to see what answers our wonderful features come up with!

Happy summer, may your days be long, sunny, and super groovy while in pursuit of creating a life you love.

For Creatives and By Creatives - Issue 01

In May of 2017, a group of twenty somethings who had nothing in common decided to get together in collaboration. 

This is not how a magazine is typically created. But despite our different outlets, each of us understands what it means to be extremely passionate about something.

We are writers, artists, travelers, storytellers. We come from bustling cities and lazy beach towns. We listen to acoustic campfire songs, and dance to the wildest electronic music tracks. 

Hear & There celebrates a diversity of people, passions, and life experiences. It explores the notion that if we exchange art and ideas between people who are completely different, perhaps we can achieve some greater wisdom; or even just discover a new favorite band, artist, or surf spot.

For the past month, the a talented contributors at Hear & There have worked hard to bring these ideas together into one cohesive and highly visual reading experience. 

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together. 

Thank You,

Lindsay Sunada
