Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A personal selection of 80 of photographer Hans Kemp's most outstanding and emotionally stirring images, taken over a period of 20 years of traveling and photographing, mainly in Asia, reproduced to the highest quality and beautifully presented in a large format book. The photos intimately portray the full scale of human emotions, from forlorn sadness during a funeral in Moldova to euphoric elation during the New Year water festival in Myanmar.

Synopsis:

The photographs that appear in this book have been taken during almost 20 years of travel and photography in and around Asia. This selection of images is a very personal one. The genesis of this book lies in a desire to preserve what cannot be maintained. Asia has changed, sometimes beyond recognition, over these 20 years. The vicissitudes of time can drown one's memories, photos are there to resuscitate them
