The author presented an hors de oeuvre that whet my taste buds for the remainder of the book as he described in exquisite detail his preliminary encounters in the Third World while in Chad....then he provided the next course with a series of developmental tid bits that held my interest and that left me wondering what the main course might be... I wasn't disappointed!
I thoroughly enjoyed and shared vicariously his wanderings around the planet as he developed from being a young man growing up in a small New England town into that of wizened traveler in his 40's, traveling the world as he became a highly regarded photojournalist employed by Getty Images....The main course was intriguing but not filling. I was left wondering how I was going satisfy the remainder of my appetite.
Now that Getty has moved from the east coast and is in the throes of being purchased....I wonder when dessert will be served?
About a third of the way through the book, as I was almost adjusting to this style I realized what was going on. In a sense this book is a verbal representation of the work of a photojournalist. An image is captured and then published. Despite the small caption beneath the image, you don't really know what went on before or after. It is a frozen slice of time. It stands or falls on its own. It just is.
I've never seen this done with prose before. I don't know whether McCollester did this intentionally or as I suspect, it reflects his photojournalist-nature but either way it makes an interesting read on several levels.
