Transit: Around the World in 1424 Days, by Uwe Ommer.
Kevin Kelly turned me on to this stunning, joyous book. Photos of the photographer’s four-year, 150,000 mile Land Rover journey in over 130 countries, it’s in scrapbook form and a total delight. It’s huge, must weigh 10 lbs., 720 pages. Like Japanese photographer Yoshio Komatsu, Ommer obviously has rapport with everyone whose picture he shoots. It’s remarkable how happy all these people look, obviously comfortable with the photographer. It’s such an inspiration to me.
