Wade Davis: Photographs
by Wade Davis
Publisher: Douglas and McIntyre
In Wade Davis: Photographs, celebrated anthropologist and photographer Wade Davis selects 150 of his favourite photographs from the thousands he has taken in the course of his forty-year career. Intimate portraits of family and community life, they are universal in feel, although they represent an enormous diversity of geographical locations and cultural backgrounds. Each one captures a rich story about the human condition, and invites the viewer to experience scenes of family, magic, love, and tradition.
