Product description

Tan-leather bound book in excellent condition, illustrated throughout. Pages clean and tightly bound.

A distillation of the visual and written notebooks kept during a lifetime of travel by Australian photographer Brett Hilder, this book is a poetic journal and philosophical travelogue. It is an evocation of a journey through lands of Spanish culture in the Mediterranean and Latin America, and to Eritrea in Africa, as well as a meditation on the ties that bind him to his homeland. Brett Hilder's words form the background to his astonishing photographs of people and landscapes. "This book is a travel diary, a day journal and a fairy tale. Almost a novel. A magical mystery tour illustrated by beautiful images from the past and present.....After visiting D. H. Lawrence's grave in Taos, New Mexico, Brett clutches a Cuervo Gold and listens to Segovia in the Adobe Bar, surrounded by Zapata's men and photographs of Lawrence......Fabulous images. In Taos, ochre yellow houses are iced with snow like Chinese-pavilion wedding cakes. The surrounding black shapes of trees are thrown into sharp relief by mounded dumps of snow. Only Brett could see the radar domes of the White Sands missile range on the Chihuahua plain as "Moorish minarets". The beautifully named Eritrean city of Asmara is coloured by public gardens and shrouded with diesel smog while a large hawk rides the blue urban air above the smog."
