Encounters - A Photographic Journey
Author(s): Levison Wood
Staff notes: We have some die-hard Levison Wood fans at The Book Bird who will be thrilled to know he’s released his first photography monograph. Wood is best known as an adventurer and author of books about exploring. His previous title, Incredible Journeys: Discovery, Adventure, Danger, Endurance, was a hit with both young and adult readers alike. Encounters takes his output in a different direction, focusing on remote places and the people who live there, photographed over a ten-year period. This book is one for the photojournalism, documentary, and travel lovers out there.
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.
From 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.
