About the Book
This book captures some of the diversity of the world (landscapes, people, cultures, religions, folklore) through photographs taken by the author over more than 50 years on journeys in rarely visited parts of the world. It includes photographs of Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, and Chile. The photos were chosen from a pool of tens of thousands, favoring the ones that pique curiosity, carry inspiring stories, or show bygone and unique scenes. The atypical, off-the-beaten-track flavor of the resulting collection should make this book interesting to many readers.
