I can't say enough good about this book. But I'll try. I took a workshop from Charlie Harbutt in 1972, two years before this book came out. He showed a lot of these photographs at the workshop and I was absolutely floored by the quality of the photographs. Charles saw things in a way that jerked me out of my photojournalistic routes and into a more pure form of photography. The year (1974) Travelog came out I took another workshop from Charlie and it all came together. The power of the book is that it's truly more than the sum of its photographs. The sequencing is superb. The size of the book is modest but perfect. If memory serves the book won the 'best book' award at the Arles Photography festival in Paris in 1974. Great book and Charlie is a great photographer and great teacher. This ranks with The Americans (Robert Frank), Exiles (Josef Koudelka), The Decisive Moment (Cartier-Bresson), Telex Iran (Gilles Peress), and Tulsa (Larry Clark) as one of the greatest photography books of the second half of the 20th century.
