The Human Thread: Photography of Joe Coca

Through evocative images, insightful descriptions, and companionpersonal stories, Joe Coca guides us on a global journey, weavingtogether place, people, craft, and story with the human thread thatconnects us all.Each section of the book features an array of remarkablephotographs that shows a region's people—most often portraits ofartisans working in ancient traditions—as well as surprisingglimpses of culture and environment.From a high altitude soccer match in Peru to silk weavers in Laos,exotic locales are made personal through intimate portraits, thework of hands, and everyday life captured, not by an observer, butby a participant, a fellow companion on the journey.
