Vanishing is a riveting collection of 16 photo essays taken over 16 years by one of the world’s most acclaimed photojournalists. It is a tour through endangered life forms and ruined environments, human catastrophes and destruction—resulting in vanishing cultures. From the book’s introduction: “Vanishing speaks on behalf of life, despite man’s ever-threatening presence. This body of work offers nothing in the way of answers, neither is it a sermon in hopes of brighter days . . . Vanishing gives those who go about their business, living their lives, a chance to look beyond their worlds and into others.”
Included are Guyana, Bohemia, Beirut, Bolivia, Congo, Louisiana, Zimbabwe, Ecuador, Prague, Chernobyl, Angola, the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Iraq and New York City.
