Basic supermarket shopping has become a global affair: We buy strawberries grown in Peru, rice cultivated in Indonesia and beef from Columbian ranchers. Michael Clinton has created a global volume for a global age. Shot in luminous four-colour, 'Global Snaps: 500 Photographs from 7 Continents' celebrates the diversity of human culture and the startling array of images. Sellout author of 'Wanderlust: One Hundred Countries', Clinton again takes us on a trip into the tantalizing prospect of trotting the globe. Over thirty-five years of travel, Clinton has compiled the photo album that we all wish we had taken ourselves. Organised by continent with convenient tabbing for quick reference, 'Global Snaps' is part global tour guide, part fantasy. Clinton's photos cover an astonishing one hundred and five countries and every continent. His book is an incredible survey of all the places everyone wants to visit - the Taj Mahal, Sistine Chapel and Pyramids of Giza - along with many other sites that provide inspiration for more exotic ventures, like Antarctic ice flows and Turkish mosques.Clinton brings the same degree of care and sensitivity to his 'snapshots' of great monuments as to his intimate portraits of local life.
