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 ofremarkable photographs that shows a region’s people—most oftenportraits of artisans working in ancient traditions—as well assurprising glimpses of culture and environment. From a highaltitude soccer match in Peru to silk weavers in Laos, exoticlocales are made personal through intimate portraits, the work ofhands, and everyday life captured, not by an observer, but by aparticipant, a fellow companion on the journey.
