We are Dara Hamarneh and Gael Pineiro Beiras and we have been working on this project, In and Out of Youth, over the course of the year. It is a fashion photobook that is entirely produced by us: photography, styling and layout design. The book features people from our daily lives and surroundings (mainly in Florence and London). It is based on our personal experiences, and tells a story of coming of age.
We felt the need to put this out in the world and share it with people that would understand this topic and would have a deep connection to what we are trying to convey. We used this photobook to portray our reality in a very down to earth, honest way (which is ironic at times and serious at others).
We are looking to self-publish this book and as we are a small team we need some help in order to bring it to life and get it out there for the world to see. Any contributions would mean the world to us - it would help bring our vision to life.
