the outsiders

Gestalten take us through latest release The Outsiders: New Outdoor Creativity in this short film. A survey of the new wave of back to nature projects and pursuits, this image heavy book a reminder that all that tech outerwear and enamel, all those archive hiking boots and fancy heritage knives do occasionally get used for their original purpose. Gestalten describe “whether hiking through the mountains, paddling on a silent lake, or simply spending a night in a tent far away from civilization, more and more of us are turning to the great outdoors for a touch of adventure.” Focusing on “design-literate outdoor entrepreneurs” this is old-fashioned wilderness fun with a contemporary, marketable face. Featuring the likes of  Patagonia’s Vincent Stanley, Poler’s Benji Wagner, Geoff McFetridge, surf photographer Chris Burkard and custom motorcycle builder James Crowe. Published by Gestalten. Available from Amazon.
