74 cm

74 cm names after our steps avarage measure. Our project consists in a photographic trip that connects the cities of Estambul and Cairo by foot, walking more than 2.500 km through Middle East.

We are two woman, mother and daughter, who want to get closer to the women from the other side from the Mediterranean sea, to share their everyday life as we mo-ve along. Despite not being newsable, we believe those woman normal stories have the great power to unite people deeply, precisely for its character of universality every-day life has. We will travel by foot, to perceive the slow changings of landscapes and people’s traditions, giving ourselves the time to get into the villages and cities, and to create with these encounters, a tale of life of this close middle east that barely appears on the news.

And we want to share it with you, day by day, in a travel notebook as an honest and transparent personal diary through our blog and social networks, in which the people we meet lives will fusion with our owns.

The origin

We are not tourists, we are not travelers, nomads, or adventurers, none of these apply. The reason for our journey is to make a man’s dream ours, a man who is not here anymore, Robert, Ginebra’s and Trabal’s dad, my dad. We are two regular women sharing a special moment, a unique opportunity in our lives that we do not want to miss.

 

 

My dad was a photographer too. He was diagnosed with an stage IV pancreatic cancer on September 2015. Together, we shared a photographic diary about life, love and family through the social networks until he passed away, on February the 1st, 2017.
He died happy and quiet, surrendered by the one who loved him the most, but far too soon. He couldn’t accomplish one of his biggest dreams: the one of this trip. So, it is with your help that we are becoming his legs and his eyes, and will take him all these kilometers long that connect these three cities he felt in love with when he was young.
