Description
Witnessing the complex and colorful diversity that runs through southern Asia, photographer Hans Kemp here presents stunning images depicting the people and places of this fascinating region and offering insight into the traditions and also the changes that have shaped the continent. These 80 photos are reproduced singly on 11 x 15-inch pages in a landscape format with generous white borders, leaving nothing but a location and date on the opposite page to distract. In this setting they become windows into other worlds, and could as easily be removed from the book and hung on the wall to create a multifaceted portrait stretching from Iran to Vietnam. The Dutch photographer whose book Bikes of Burden was mentioned on the floor of the U.S. Senate as proof of Vietnam's economic vitality in major trade negotiations, Kemp has been a frequent and widely traveled visitor to Asia since the mid-1980s. His vivid color images are both evocative and profoundly humane, depicting a world vastly different from our own yet built on the same foundations.
