Shadow Stories is a book of comings and goings, but never quite arriving. It is about a never-ending passage through life, camera in hand. Along the way, chance encounters with people, places and happenings are captured in images of black and white. Each tells a story, but one with no end.
World adventurer and photographer Ella Maillart once said, "You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown, you travel for the unknown that reveals you with yourself."
Welcome along for the journey,
