I love photography and I love to travel, and I take my camera with me wherever I go. This is just a small selection of some of the faces and places I’ve encountered on my wanderings. For more, check out my Instagram or Strange Geographies, my long-running series of travel essays for mental floss.

I have thousands, some of which have found their way into my books. Here are 18 that inspire me but have never been published.
