The Human Thread: Photography of Joe Coca
Through evocative images, insightful descriptions, and companion personal stories, Joe Coca guides us on a global journey, weaving together place, people, craft, and story with the human thread that connects us all. Each section of the book features an array of remarkable photographs that shows a region’s people—most often portraits of artisans working in ancient traditions—as well as surprising glimpses of culture and environment. From a high altitude soccer match in Peru to silk weavers in Laos, exotic locales are made personal through intimate portraits, the work of hands, and everyday life captured, not by an observer, but by a participant, a fellow companion on the journey.
