“The world suddenly feels bigger again…”
Nelson Ng is founder, editor and art director of Lost, a travel magazine based in Shanghai and published in both English and Mandarin. Of course the pandemic has made international travel much more problematic than it used to be, and that will inevitably have consequences for anyone making a travel magazine. But as you’ll hear Nelson is pretty philosophical about the situation, and he speaks about how he thinks travel feels different these days, while also acknowledging that he expects it will be significantly harder to make his next issue.
He also fills me in on the art book fairs that were held in Shanghai last month – he exhibited at both of them and it was great to get his view from behind the trestle table, and he also makes a recommendation for a new magazine we should all be looking out for. (Watch out for that coming to the Stack site just as soon as we can get hold of it.)
In the meantime we have copies of Lost available to buy in the Stack shop, so if you enjoy this one, go and pick one up for yourself while stocks last.
