Portraits: Moments of Intimacy on the Road

Photographs based on brief encounters around the globe

Each of these photographs is a testament to the human ability to connect across the fault lines that keep us precariously divided. And each is a tribute to the accidental intimacy of the road.

About the Book

For years, when traveling, I found myself getting in conversations with people when I took their pictures, and started to consult with them―showing them the digital shot, then retaking it until we had one they were happy with. It gave us a reason to interact, and a way to do so, even when we shared no language in common. These portraits are the result of those extended sessions, those moments of accidental intimacy on the road. Readers of my three travel books (Drinking Mare’s Milk on the Roof of the WorldAnd the Monkey Learned Nothing, and The Kindness of Strangers) may recognize some of the people, because a number of them feature in those stories. But each stands on its own―each a testament to the human ability to connect across the fault lines that keep us precariously divided. And each is a tribute to the accidental intimacy of the road.

To have earned the kind of trust that enabled him to make such revealing portraits, in such disparate cultures, is no small thing.
