Zehrudin Isaković (1966) holds a Masters in Arts in communication and works as a journalist, but much of his life has been devoted to mountains. He’s the author of a TV series about the Balkan Mountains, several documentaries about mountains all over the world (around seventy), and numerous maps and hiking guidebooks. He’s won many awards for his films and participated in several festivals as a member or the president of the jury. As a youngster, he was an active alpinist with more than 250 climbed routes. At the tender age of seventeen, he climbed the north face of Petit Dru in the Mont Blanc Massif, which was an adventure of a lifetime. He’s been to most of the world’s mountain ranges and took part in expeditions to Everest and Cho Oyu. He was the president of the Mountaineering Union of Bosnia and Herzegovina (2014–2018) and was awarded its gold medal for his work in alpinism.
