Throughout his travels, Bruce Chatwin took thousands of photographs. They demonstrate his legendary 'eye' at its best, showing an extraordinary sense of colour and surface, an ability to find beauty in the most mundane of objects or prosaic of places. This new collection of his photographs, much larger than Photographs and Notebooks, is edited and introduced by Roberto Calasso.
Bruce Chatwin reinvented British travel writing with his first book, In Patagonia, and followed it with many travel books and novels, each unique and extraordinary. He died in 1989.
