Evocative black-and-white photographs of peoples and places very faraway: The roads not taken of China, Tibet, Bhutan, and Ladakh. "Snider's interest in the people he encountered during his travels was equalled only by his love of photography itself and by his command of light, composition, and design" (Sylvia Wolf). These luminous images speak eloquently for themselves. An absolute "must-have" title for Larry Snider collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen on the title page by the photographer: "With best wishes and many fond memories, Larry Snider".
