On The Road : The art of the journey
"Journeys by land, sea and air are celebrated in the latest book from international news agency Reuters" AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER The road we step out onto connects us to the world. Each day, across the globe, millions of journeys are made across cities, countries and continents. Some journeys are made by choice. We take to the streets to demonstrate our political convictions, celebrate our common rituals, or test the physical limits of our bodies. Other journeys are made by necessity. We flee war zones, we migrate in search of a better life. Or on an everyday level, we join neighbours and strangers to head off to the day's work. On the Road is a stunning collection of images from Reuters, the world's largest international news agency, on the universal theme of the journey. Across the globe, every day, Reuters photographers are there to capture the decisive moment from a new angle. Through these extraordinary pictures we can explore the nature of the journeys undertaken by us all, and rediscover our common humanity.

A must for any photography enthusiast." - Digital Camera Buyer
