* We challenge our growing community of travellers; leading debate and discussion about travel and the world.
* We tell it like it is without fear or favor in service of the travellers; not clouded by any other motive.
What We Believe
We believe that travel leads to a deeper cultural understanding and compassion and therefore a better world.
Following the acclaimed One Planet, this book looks at the broad diversity and simple commonality between people and cultures around the world. Each photograph is beautiful, but the juxtaposition of opposing images in the double-page spreads relays the connection between cultures as people experience the life cycle. Separate sections focus on birth, play, love, work, celebration, and death. Among the comparisons: a malnourished Ugandan baby and an Australian newborn of record-breaking weight; pitifully bare shelves in a Russian grocery store and abundance in an Algerian store; a Somalian man building a home of twigs for displaced refugees and window-washers cleaning the gleaming windows of a skyscraper in Argentina; crowds of student protesters in France and a Seoul protester whose mouth is covered with a bandana; young girls competing in an American beauty pageant and young women bedecked in traditional costumes for the coming-of-age day in Tokyo; decorated candy skulls for Day of the Dead rituals in Mexico and real human skulls uncovered in the killing fields of Cambodia.
