This new book includes nearly 120 photographs, the earliest from the 1980s and many previously unpublished, depicting everyday lives from a diverse range of countries including Bulgaria, Tanzania, Peru, Russia, Afghanistan, Italy and Mongolia. His black and white photographs, all shot on film, show the universal markers of all our lives – the births, marriages and deaths; the grafters – lumberjacks, miners, tailors and chimney sweeps; the grit – the homeless, sick and imprisoned; and the joy – the festivals, the discos and catching of snowflakes on the tongue.
