Jack London has been a legendary writer of the beginning of the Nineteenth century: famous, prolific, controversial, and revolutionary. He has been one of the most fascinating personalities in the history of US. But this is not all. In his life, Jack London was also a photographer (he would call his pictures "human documents") and his camera has been his inseparable companion in his adventures and reportages all over the world. In the years between 1900 and 1916, Jack London took more than twelve thousand photographs.
The book “Jack London. The paths men take”, with the introduction by Davide Sapienza, includes a vast selection of his photography reportages, together with his excerpts from his narrative and journalistic masterpieces. These include important landmarks in which Jack London was witness of key events of his times, like the Russo-Japanese War, the San Francisco earthquake and the incredible Cruise of the Snark.
“Jack London. The paths men take” is part of “In words” book collection, published by Contrasto, that brings together Literature and Photography.
