Encounters : A Photographic Journey
Join Sunday Times bestselling author, award-winning explorer and photographer Levison Wood on his extraordinary journeys around the world - vividly revealed in his first photography book. 'A compelling visual record of a career spent at the extremes.' Sunday Telegraph'Levison Wood's new book is all the travelling you need to do this year... Bringing together 140 of his most striking photos, selected from over a decade on the road, it offers a stunning portrait of the vastly different places, people and lives the world contains - and which most of us will never see.' Gentleman's JournalFrom images documenting his time in war zones to encounters with communities who have returned to traditional ways of life in the face of ecological disasters, Wood's photographs offer a unique insight into the resilience and resourcefulness of those living in some of the least accessible places on the planet. Chapters include Frontiers, Wood's intrepid ventures to remote environments; Conflict, covering not only the front-line battles but also the long-term devastation of war; Heritage, documenting his observations on ancient practices co-existing with modern technology; and Community, his record of the universal importance of family roots, cultural identities and community ties.
With his unique experiences in extraordinary locations and his eye for compelling compositions, Wood has created a powerful collection of images that celebrates humanity in all its variety.
