In 2015, photographer and scientist Bob Farese, Jr., moved to a new and somewhat bewildering city, finding himself suddenly without the creature comforts of family and friends, and experiencing aloneness in an unexpected and profound way. To soothe his feelings of isolation, Farese began taking street photographs.

Over the next five years, Farese continued his personal photographic journey with guidance from his mentor, the British/Egyptian photographer, Laura El-Tantawy.

The images are embedded in an accompanying poem, written by Farese, that capture his emotions while walking and shooting. Together the poem and the images offer a contemplative experience, inviting one to stop and rest within the pages. This experience is heightened by the book’s design, which beckons the reader to discover the connections between the words and pictures.
